Default Best replacement MAF brand?

Would anyone care to give an opinion on the best replacement MAF brand for the 3.0L? Based on actual experience please.
I am not looking for a long winded dissertation on how a MAF works.
Thanks.

ACdelco is OEM so I would say that would be best.

OEM is Bosch. The quality on the Bosch replacements seems to be quite variable. So I am wondering if anyone has had good luck with anything else.
Otherwise it's Bosch, cross fingers, and hope to get 20K out of it. Assuming it's not 30 G/S with the engine off.

It's AC Delco on the box and Bosch inside the box.

The sensor is removeable from its cylindrical housing, but you need a special torx bit which can fit a screw with the little "security tip" in the middle of the torx shaping at the screw head (assuming your housing has this type of screw on it). If the AC Delco product is a Bosch item that's been reboxed - and apparently you're not happy with a Bosch product - then I would choose the Delphi brand MAF Sensor.

The OEM on our 2003 is still fine at 110k. If it dies then in will go another OEM.

Replaced mine with Bosch and no problems. So unless there is a history of problem Bosch to show otherwise this is a opinionated thread only.
