Higher rpms on a stock motor. But the stock cams / heads fall off about 5700rpms, and the bottom end balance gets dirty up over 5800rpms.. so there is really no point. If you had a balanced bottom end and ported head (w/cams) then IMO it **might** be worth it.
There is a huge misconception about the MAF meter. Truth is the stock one can be made bigger by modifying the sensors physical crossection. That's the first route I'd take. (you'll have to re-map the transfer function)
Then I'd want to see 5V with at least 500rpms to go. Then and only then would I step up to a aftermarket MAF.
Swaping the MAF does not add power. Most likely these aftermarket MAF's transfer function is skewed and leaning out the A/F. That is most likely where the "perception" of a power increase is coming from.
On my ranger the 1-2 shift is at 5800 and I'm no where near maxing out the stock MAF. Even in below freezing (high DA) weather.
If you want real power increases.. go with a larger exhaust system first.
