Jake: Jake here for American Trucks. And today I'm taking a look at the Jet Performance Products Powr-Flo Mass Air Sensor for 2014 to 2018 Silverado 1500. If your Silverado is feeling a little sluggish or wheezy, especially if you've recently done a cold air intake, then this Powr-Flo Mass is gonna be for you. This is an excellent upgrade for your Silverado that's gonna make a noticeable improvement in performance and drivability. It's also affordable and it's super easy to install so you really can't argue with that. Now, mass air flow sensors are not just a common failure point on older vehicles, but they're also a bit of a choke point for modified vehicles as well. If you've been driving long enough, I'd be willing to bet that you've had a mass get weird on you. A bad sensor like this can make your truck feel like it's falling flat on its face, especially, if you've got a cold air intake.It'll run rough, it'll bog down, it'll get poor gas mileage, any number of different symptoms. And it may seem like an insignificant thing since it's only this one little sensor, but this is what's taking measurements for the engine computer to calculate the air-fuel ratio. And that's vitally important to keeping your engine running smoothly and properly. Now the factory sensors are not really set up for maximum performance either, they're usually pretty restrictive. So upgrading this makes sense, especially if you've already got, or you're planning to do something like an aftermarket intake or throttle body. An aftermarket intake or that throttle body is gonna shove more air past this mass and Jet Performance's Powr-Flo sensor is gonna be able to adjust the engine computer properly to make your truck run and perform better than stock and make it feel good.Jet has flow-tested this and set it up to account for increased airflow and not limit the air-fuel ratio like a stock mass would. Now we're not talking about crazy HP or torque gains here, folks, but you are gonna get a noticeable improvement in performance, response, and possibly even your miles per gallon as well since your truck isn't gonna be leaning out or running super rich in order to compensate for that increased airflow. Now that's not to say that this is gonna make quite as much of a difference as say a dedicated tune. However, if you're only making smaller modifications to your truck like that cold air intake or the throttle body, or even an exhaust, this is a great way to go since it's gonna far undercut the price of a tune, and you're still gonna get some tangible results.It's a good quality product too, and it's truly a shame that it's gonna be obscured most of the time that it's installed since this hides inside of the intake tubing. The housing here is made from nice injection-molded plastic, and it's meant to withstand the heat of your engine compartment. It's also a total plug-and-play operation as well. Now, price-wise, this is gonna run you around $275. And I know what you're thinking, that sounds like a lot for a sensor, but again, this is gonna make a noticeable difference in how your truck drives. And again, it far undercuts the price of even a standard handheld tuning module. Now, if you're not planning to go wild with your modifications, then this is definitely a good choice and a good value for what you're gonna get out of it. Now, like I mentioned a moment ago, installation of this is also super easy. I mean, it's pretty small. This is gonna get a one out of three on our difficulty meter, and it should only take you about 10 minutes to get it installed in your truck. Just a clip for the plug and these two screws, and it's gonna pop right in the place of your stock mass air flow sensor. And to show you that process now, let's throw it over to one of our AT customers.Man: Getting ready to install Jet Powr-Flo Mass Air Flow Sensor. These are the tools we're using. This is one tool, is a Allen wrench number three, and we're using a adjustable power tool. And the only reason we're using an adjustable power tool is because the intake tube is metal, so we can use this. I've already disconnected the battery because we're dealing with electricity. So the instruction says disconnect the battery.We got two screws holding the mass air flow sensor in. On this particular vehicle, they happen to be Allen screws number three. This is the stock, this is the replacement. The difference, that's the difference. Now we're gonna install the Jet Powr-Flo Mass Air Flow Sensor, just reversing what we did with the regular one. Put it in, insert the lock washers, set my tool to the lowest setting, and toss it down. Reconnect the electrical cable, reconnect the battery, test completed.Jake: That's gonna do it for our review and install of the Jet Performance Products Powr-Flo Mass Air Flow Sensor for 2014 to 2018 Silverado 1500. Thanks so much for watching, and remember for all things Silverado, be sure to keep it right here at americantrucks.com.
