Hello all.
Hoping someone can give me some advise. I have a fiesta rs 1800, I would like to improve its performance without chipping.
I thought about an air induction kit, but have been told it would be better to fit a 2.0 zetec maf air sensor instead.
Is this good advise ? and if so which maf sensor would I be looking for to replace mine.
Help much appreciated. Regards . Colin.

Induction kit and exhaust
2ltr maf is larger so combined with the induction kit.
I do have both for sale btw

Surely the MAF on its own will do nothing as the ecu isn't calibrated to use it. If anything I would say the 2ltr throttle body as it'll allow more air in quicker and the MAF will recognise the correct amount of air and therefore the ecu will fuel correctly.
Definitely an induction kit will help along with a decent exhaust and manifold if you can stretch to it. Cams will make big power but really need a programable ecu to get the most from them.
NA engines are notoriously difficult to tune for any reasonable gains without spending wads of cash unfortunately :(

Just my tuppence worth
