Wasn't sure what angle was best or if mattered?? Looked clean facing back and kept wires clear. NOT a stock MAF.

They say that the MAF should remain in the original orientation, or you need to tune it if not. I've had the MAF in both my Ranger and Lightning out of the original orientation for years, never made a difference to me.

You datalog both regularly?


I don't recall how it started or why but I'm sure I'm to blame.

I didn't figured it mattered. It's just an element that measures airflow.. Shouldn't make difference. If it does it's easy enough to twist around.

*Not driving until tune. Few mods left before Dyno/Tune Day.

it actually does make a difference, but for a really mild tune setup it's probably fine, and if you're getting tuned for it they can address it in the tune. It is recommended to leave it in the stock orientation though

The sensor can be turned in any way you like. One of the cures for a poor idle with CAI and aftermarket filters, etc... is to rotate the MAF a little at a time until the best idle quality is found and then tighten it down there.

The only possible drawback I can think of, is if it was upside down, moisture might work its way into the "top" (now bottom) of the sensor, and mess with the readings.
