    Using a MAF or not

    Gotta ask...

    Is there any benefit for us in converting to using a MAF instead of just looking up tables.

    Short answer is NO

    Long answer is too long.



    Joking
    MAF has the advantage of measuring precise volumes of air. Most use is to get things like emmisions right.
    Currently PWC tuning is very rich (compared to late model car engine)
    +/- 2% to any of you our there will not make a difference, but to a car manufacturer who is intending to run smack on lambda 1 pretty much all the time - its a big variation.
    98% of all race engine builders that dont have to (by the rules) keep their air mass meters throw them away.
    They are usually restictive, fragile and often out of resolution when increasing airflow with modifications.
    The last thing I would want on a PWC.
    mmmmmmmmmm unless we were running restictors, but thats another story.



    Cheers

    Thanks, now it is documented

    I had 2 sensors go bad in my 911 due to a bad AOS (air/oil separator) Touchy little things.
