    The 1998 MAF has a fixed diameter housing and I'm looking to use a 1999-2004 MAF as it's a drop in type into the intake tube.
    Found that 99 and higher models have a larger intake tube and have more selection to performance intakes.
    Anyone did this swap?... as the MAF plugs look identical and seems like a plug and play.
    If not, I'll take a gamble at it after Christmas and buy the 99+ performance intake and MAF to see if it's compatible.
    Thank you in advance!!

    I have been looking at this off and on this morning and I cannot see a difference between the two (connector wise). I tried looking through some FSM's for wire differences but I do not have one specific to the 98 5vz. It seems you may have to just try it out. Sorry I couldn't help further.

    Thank you for the input!!
    It's been buggin me for sometime as I see no physical differences in the molex/connector including the pin placement. I'm actually itchin to do this sometime soon and I'll definitely post up my findings.
    Can't see why buying a larger performance intake for a 98 or earlier 5vz and still utilize the fixed housing of the MAF.
