I am getting a pro-m next weekend and am a little confused.

1. I don't know the difference between a "bullet" style and a regular meter.

2. 77mm or 80mm or 87mm???

thanks

For a N/A Cobra you want to go with 80mm.......and for S/C or nitrous applications you want an 87mm from what I've heard. As far as the styles, I'm not sure.

I'm running an 80mm C&L MAF.

I'm running the 87mm on my supercharged car. The Bullit style I think is for the 2001 Bullit? But I'm not sure.

The 87mm will bolt up to your factory piping as it is a flanged meter. The 77 and 80 are not flanged, they are just basically round on both ends. If you are using a UPR or Anderson power pipe, this is the most common type. If you plan on using a Densecharger or WMS or similar cold air kit that works with factory meters, you pretty much have to get a flanged meter for it to bolt up.

I run the 87mm WMS with velocity tube on my N/A car, I picked up about 15 rwhp and i am not exaggerating. I recommend the WMS setup which is sold as a complete set including MAF and upper/lower velocity tubes....be prepared to spend around $450.00 with our discount though....hope this helps. -Rob

WMS just came out with a High Velocity intake setup.

It is a 4-inch velocity tube and a 95mm pro-m.

Is this excessive?

I'm assuming it's not if you're blown. But you don't need to go bigger than 80mm for a N/A application.:eek:

just to follow up...

I contacted western motorsports and they said the reason for a 95mm pro-m is that it gets more accurate readings which are needed when the space the element is in gets bigger(which is 4" in the high velocity setup). So the size doesn't matter really on a N/A car but it depends more on how much air is coming through the inlet tube.

oh yeah and you said blown...hehe:rotf:

You don't need the 4". I have the WMS Vel. tube and the 87 Pro-M on my N/A 99". I am going to order the new upper tube from them when they get it in, They told me that they are having quality issues with the supplier of the rubber flange that attaches to the TB.

Makes sense I guess.

The club discount is free ceramic coating. Normally an option. Currently the 95mm MAF is less expensive than the 87mm through WMS (I forget by how much). They said there would not be any negative affect on a NA application using the 95mm unit. They have been backordered for a while though. I ordered mine in the beginning of Jan and last time I heard from Shannon he said they planned on shipping in March.
