Hello, i have a 98' tacoma prerunner with a 3.4L. It has had the following mods....
A Trd supercharger (assuming the receipt in glove box for a "custom high stall converter" $420 is the 'TRD supercharger'
And i also found a receipt in the glove box for item FTC1-017E(something to do with fuel/timing cal, etc.) with a cost of $579.00
The air flow meter is a bigger diameter than the stock meter. The original application for this meter is to a 93-98 supra turbo. This air flow meter has gone bad.
I cannot find this exact meter anywhere but the Toyota dealer for $1,000.00! My question is...can i use a different toyota maf, as long as it is the same diameter air opening and plug-in? For example, the air flow meter of a 95-97 Lexus LS400 is nearly identical except for the cross hairs in what i call the center torpedo tube. I can find this maf at salvages for less than $100. Can you tell me if this maf would work or should i send this broken meter off to cardone through my local auto parts and have it rebuilt for nearly $300?
I appreciate any advice you can give me. My truck has been down for weeks and i'm really needing to get it fixed. Would just like to do so as cheap as possible.
Thank you, Joe
