Typically the idle adaptive (long term fuel trim, lowest air mass) will show if the low slope may not be correct. If the other (higher air mass) adaptive values are close to nominal, most likely the high slope is pretty close, leaving the low slope to correct the idle adaptive cell, provided you do not have an air leak.
If you don't have either the MAF transfer function or the injectors accurately characterized, you really have no way of knowing which, if either is correct.
I'm sure someone has a 3" maf transfer function out there somewhere....
You should never use long turm fuel trim for tuning anything and never use short turm fuel trim or either for setting the high or low slopes

LTFT should be turned off in my opinion and STFT1 should be adjusted in the MTF , what about WOT and the high slope ? what about when he changes to blowthrough , adds a MAFia , you can throw out any MTF any one can give you and and injector settings on paper , then what does he do ?

Why does everyone approach tuning engines the hard way
