I thought about dropping all the cats. I needed to know if it will tripp the check engine light? I also need to know what MAF to get and where to get it. When getting a new MAF will the new one plug right into where my old one was? If you can help me that would be great. '95 4.6L

Yes it will trip the CE light.
Get a 2002 GT MAF unless you plan to supercharge, then go witht he 80mm LMAF.
You will need a harness for this MAF.
You can get the MAF, harness and chip from Dennis reinhart. the chip can keep your CE light from coming on in additition to being able to use the MAF.

...to go with the 90mm LMAF? I was under the impression that the 90mm was the way to go if you plan on going with a SC.

If you're not going with majorly....

reworked heads plus cams plus some additional trick flow
work to the SC outlet port and manifold (assuming an AED)
an 80mm LMAF works great. The "man with no name" gave
me a parts list of what I should incorporate into my
AED setup and the 80mm LMAF was what he said I should have.
Runs great - twice since then, I've asked him about going to
a bigger MAF, and unless I open up a bunch of areas in my intake
path I was told larger than 80mm would provide no bebefit.

Well...

...The man with no name know much more than I, and if he said go 80mm, then that is the way to go. No doubts in my mind. I was just posting what I have read, but I did not read it from "HIM". Thanks for the info Mager.

a 70mm TB if you're SC'ing though - you can go bigger, but
once again, if you're putting an SC on a relatively stock
non tricked head/cammed motor - 70mm does great...(from
"the man" also).

Yes you will, even

On a near stock motor, wouldn't removing all the cats result in a loss of low end torque?

if you SC. I stated this some time ago got a bunch of
argument from some self styled "experts" implying
I didn't know what I was talking about... that does not
include real pros like A-Train...unfortunately, one of
our SC'd members just learned, real world, that I am right.
You loose on the low end because "EFFECTIVE" cylinder volume
has been increased with lowered back pressure and ACTUAL
cylinder pressure will have been lowered (if you were running
a turbo then this would not neccessarily be the case).... you
can make up for it...to a point... however with a smaller pulley
and all the potential "risks" that go with them). Of course,
you do pick up some added power on the top end of the rpm band.

BTW - I asked "the man" about this exact scenario and his
answer backed up what I said above. :p
