just wondering if there is a maf adapter out there that anyone knows of that i can buy or make myself.:icon_welder: The stock air box is connected to the maf housing on the 2011 ranger 4.0l i would just cut it out if it was an older vehicle but being new i don't want to ruin any parts. ive found one online site but it seems old and scetchy and its expensive.

Also, has anyone put an aftermarket filter on thier ranger and had problems with the maf, engine lights and such? the guy who worked at a performance store i went to said that it might throw codes because of the upgraded air flow.:icon_confused:

I've seen issues from aftermarket intake setups. Not on Rangers, but the first few years of the 4.6 Mustang it was bad. People would come in with lean codes and MAF codes and we tracked it down to the CAI system. Put a plastic bag with some holes poked in it over the filter and it started running right.

alright thats good because i have a sneeking suspicion that the stock airbox is restricting quite a bit.
now just for the adapter.

I know there was someone on here who did a before and after test with his 4.0L K & N set-up. Found that the stock set-up was better, not worth the money at all. A lot of the later high performance Mustanges retain their stock air boxes. Heard that about not much to be gained with the later Rangers also.

spectre sells a maf adapter that comes with inserts to keep your maf readings correct while allowing you to run 3" tubing. i wouldnt bother either with cutting the box or just buying a drop in element because youll still have that tiny 2.25" opening thats smaller in diameter then the actual maf with the harsh square corners.

truckin did a custom ranger sri and lists the maf adapter you need.

I wouldn't call 2.25 tiny, that's larger than the TB opening in a 5.0L Mustang. What's the benifit of running a 3" tube on a stock motor? Just wondering why.

ive been running no snorkel and a drop in K&N on my ranger for a few months now. Honestly i cant tell a difference. Throtle responce is awesome, but its really about the same overall.

Going to try putting the snorkel back in, and see if it changes anything.

one good thing is it hisses and whines like a supercharger would when you give it, which make the beaners around here think its got something it doesnt. lol

4.0 2wd auto with upgraded plugs and wires.

next is a power programer.

Yeah, the 4.0 doesn't have much to gain from JUST a CAI setup. There is a dyno sheet floating around here (can't find it ATM) that shows the 4.0 loses power with just the CAI. You need headers, bigger pipes, and a programmer to really get the benefits.
