I just called C&L and he said it wouldn't work with it, and that I would run in to problems. He actually said I would be better off to go with Pro-M if I had a cai setup. I just looked at a pic and it doesn't seem to be flanged.
All I know is that I used it and had no problems with it. The 73mm bolted right up to the cai. I hear a lot of things about problems with the C&L working with cai or superchargers but I have been successful with both.
I am a dealer for both MAC and C & L.. I would love to know how you can make them fit together.. The C & L Meter does NOT have a flange.. you know the thing with 4 bolts??? it has a slip fit design on both the inlet and the outlet so HOW could you bolt it right up>??? I have a C & L on my car (95 gt ) now and it is working a ton better than the pro m i just took off and sold.. I had a mac cold air kit bolted to the pro m but when i took it off i had to take the cold air kit off as well.. Just my .02..
Glad to know you are a dealer for Mac and C&L. Well this is the part # for the C&L meter on my 94GT (C&L 8A3301023). This unit is flanged (4 bolts you know). THis unit is a Vortech/C&L. I got it from Summit Racing awhile back for $125 plus shipping.
My C&L was also flanged on one side. So it bolted right up to the MAC cold air kit. The aft end of it has the slip fit design and the MAC kit had the rubber fittings that fit right over it. So like I said, my C&L fit perfect with the MAC cai.
all i can tell you is i just TRIED TO BUY ONE FROM C & L AND THE OWNER LEE told me they DO NOT MAKE A FLANGED METER AT ALL FOR THE SN95 94-95 Mustang!!!!! BECAUSE I tried to buy one so i would not have to get rid of my MAC cold air kit!!!!!! AND they do NOT show one on their web site either !!!! That is not to say that they might not have in the past but AT PRESENT... BUT, you can bet i will call him tomorrow and find out what is up!!
C&L MAF's have changable sample tubes. If you change the injector size, all you have to do is change the sample tube size. Also, I have the non-flanged C&L along with a Mac CAI. How you say? See all it takes is a small modification to the flanged end of the MAC and a rubber PVC fitting along with some clamps. You cut off the flange on the MAC, then connect the pipe to the front end of the NON-flanged C&L meter with a 3" rubber PVC connector. Quite simple really. I ran into the same problem when Mustangs Unlimited sent me a non-flanged meter...I wasn't about to throw away my cold air kit, so I modified it. It looks great and works great.
I called C & L today and talked to LEE who owns the place.. It seems that none of us are wrong per say... A LONG time ago C & L contracted Vortech to build its meters.. VORTECH NO longer makes the meters for C & L.. Vortech.. NOT C & L makes the flanged meter and C & L for a short time sold them as well.. HOWEVER he says the reason he does not sell them or make them (any that summit has are vortech made ) is there was problems with air leaks when used with the stock airbox.. Which caused driveablitity problems.. This in turn caused C & L to quit using or recomending anyone use a flanged meter.. BUT, you can NOT buy a flanged meter from C & L... they do not offer them at the present time..
