    Developing a MAF sensor housing for custom air intakes

    As Darin and I have alluded to here and there, I've been working on developing a part for our Mirages. I'm starting this thread to show the development process because I think its fun and interesting. The part I'm developing is a stand alone mass airflow (MAF) sensor housing. It will be used for those of you who would like to make their own custom air intakes.

    The OEM MAF sensor housing is molded into the airbox. If you want to make a custom air intake, you have to cut up the airbox to do so. A few guys have done this already, but a new airbox from Mitsubishi costs about $45 shipped to your door, and then you have to hack it up. The much easier solution? A custom MAF sensor housing that drops right in.

    But, one can not make a custom MAF sensor housing without knowing the dimensions of the original, so I ordered one of the OEM airbox housings. Here are some pics.

    As you can see, its not a horribly complex part, but its not super simple either.

    Stay tuned for updates.



    ================================================== ===

    UPDATE: I've made a 3d printed version of the MAF housing and they are for sale. More info here.
