Attn MAFia Users

Ive been told by a few people that my set up would greatly benefit from the MAFia system.
Any problems with tuning or after tuning?
what tuning software are you using with the MAFia?
what MAF are you using stock, 05+ GT?
How easy is it to hook up can it really be done on the dyno?

I need some serious help with the MAF if i want to hit 400+ WHP

Simple to hook up, but you HAVE to make changes in the software... it has to be done manually with the SCT stuff but the Diablo stuff all you do is check a couple of boxes and it does it for you.

I havent had any issue tuning with it.

Hmm I just change my charge piping and added a 3" MAF so I need to get Tom to tweak my tune a bit. I started it up and tried to rev it up but it fell on its face.....is that because of the bigger maf tube???

Yeah changing the size of the MAF tube and charge pipe will throw your tune off and cause it to fall on it's face if you try to rev it.

haha that's what I figured. Once I get the MAF tube issue taken care of then I will get a tuning change.

all i know is that a MaFia takes a long time to tune. there's 7 set signal to choice from and you set a tune for each signal and see which one is the best.
