Is there a better mass airflow sensor that can be purchaced and installed into the 3.4 impala that can give you a better range of flow readings from stock. for example one that has more than the three resistors, or one that can get into a higher range of flow readings, possibly to read for a boosted engine in the future.

The only reason you would need an aftermarket MAF is if you are maxing out the stock MAF. Odds are that isn't happening so all you would do is create potential problems.

How are you planning to boost a 3.4? I'd say an aftermarket MAF is probably on the bottom of things to worry about on that project.

well we are planning on adapting a t3 t4 turbo charger. It will have alot of customizing of stuff, but still very possible. There is a guy on here who did it with a 3400 engine from a cavalier i want to say, and one of my friends up here has done it to his 3400, its pretty impressive, so slowly and steadily i have been collecting the parts in my garage. and now its coming down to the small items like sensors and injectors that i need to find now.

I don't know if this option works with the LA1, but I know a lot of L36 guys upgrade to an LQ4 MAF (the one from 6.0L GM trucks). Might want to look into that.

I've been floating around long enough to know a few things, may as well share when I can. Wanderson is using an LQ4 in his frankenbuild. He might be able to tell you if it would work for an LA1 application.

I don't have the manuals with me at work. But I can tell you that I used my MAF on my buddies Camaro to do some troubleshooting on his car once. And IIRC we used it on Kevin's car (04DetroitLS) when he was troubleshooting his. So I believe the pinout for the LA1 MAF is compatible with the L67 harness, as well as an LS1 harness.

With that said, yes, you SHOULD be able to use an LQ4 MAF as long as you get the MAF adapter harness from ZZP.

If you're going to go turbo though, you might want to consider an SLP LS1 MAF instead. Which you can get new here: http://intense-racing.com/Merc.....gory_Code= or you can find them on ebay.

OR, you can use the LQ4 MAF, get the adapter with the IAT breakout from ZZPerformance, and eliminate the seperate IAT sensor on our engines.
