Let's just start a group buy list for a MarkD E30 MAF kit if there's enough people on the list he'll be forced to do it ....

3. Bullet Ride (only if I can pay an "upgrade fee" to get it since I'm already paying to get one of your chips next week )

Sure I'll work something out.

Let's see how the list progresses and that could make me jump on this faster. The ideal thing is if someone lived just 15 minutes away and could come over easily. All of you are not really local, and Gleb can't run his on the street. Whoever I use, you will have to get a bung installed so we can log AFR. Rudy asked about this quite a while back so I'll probably use him, since he has a personal on-site mechanic to install the bung etc.

I have an LC-1 in my car that you could use to log AFR, but like you said I'm not local. If you wanted to try anything out on my car when I come to pick up my chip just let me know.

You need to log both AFR and RPM. I may even log the MAF signal. The MAF conversion works well on a 3.2l M20 but on the smaller displacement motors, it still requires some tuning.

I've got an LM-2 so don't need to borrow one but it would be good if someone could keep one connected up for the duration of the testing so I don't have to keep installing and re-installing it.

Why? When anyone reads about the other MAF, they'll be in the right thread anyway.
What should I call this MAF conversion? The WARMAF?
There, now I steered this back on topic.

Dumb question. What exactly is MAF? I thought that it was the same as the AFM? I'm not engine to say the least.. I'm actually learning about this just from reading all the topics.

MAF = mass airflow meter

AFM = air flow meter


An AFM is the earliest type of air metering sensor as used on EFI systems. It works by a "door" being pushed by the incoming air, and that turns a potentiomenter which sends a varying voltage to the ECU. This voltage is proportional to the intake air velocity. (but can be modified by the taper on the resistor in the potentiometer)

An MAF usually works by measuring the cooling effect of the incoming air on a heated element such as a hot wire or thin film resistor deposited on a ceramic substrate. The voltage output is proportional to the AIR MASS that is passing through the intake. It's more accurate and also has less flow restriction since there is no spring loaded door in the intake path.

So you can have both on your vehicle or just either or? I know I have the M30 AFM but I have no clue where my MAF could be located if it has it. (Once again, stupid questions but I thank you for the reply)
