Mafterburner??? drop the "M" and it is afterburner, which is used in jet engines to ignite all unburnt fuel in the exhaust chamber. but dont know anything about a mafterburner. is it a dyno company that tunes cars? a chip? i just dont know.

READ THIS.....

http://www.mafterburner.com/mafterburner_page2.htm

Direct quote off website....

"MAFterburner™ is a system which allows the owner to tune his/her air-fuel ratio in 400 RPM increments from idle to redline. This allows the owner to optimize the air fuel ratio for best power throughout the operating range of the engine using a laptop computer. There are two separate tables to allow the tuning in both open loop (wide open throttle) and closed loop (part throttle cruise) situations. The software is user friendly and allows the operator to make quick adjustments in real time, while driving or on a chassis dyno."

Found it. From the site...

The MAFterburner™ allows the user to fine tune his/her car and accommodate larger injectors, aftermarket mass air meters, and many other part modifications.

Just reading about it. Sounds like it would be good for tuned engines. Probably wouldn't see much gain on a stock engine.
