hopefully a definitive maf answer

without the debate on HOW the maf reads air mass and density versus not reading boost etc etc etc


what amount of flow is the stock zetec maf capable of accurately measuring in a 3 inch tube as far as counts what is considered "pegged"?



im hoping to get a direct answer for a widely stepped around subject ive been searching and have yet to get a definite answer ,thanks guys

1000 is the max COUNTS , or 5 volts would be considered pegged it will read some past this but you will go to the failed MAF tables and that isnt a place you want to be

That would be the same if in the stock tube or a 10 inch tube

because if people are just looking to know well now they do you cant boost more than 3-4 maybe psi on a stock maf WITHOUT getting the mafia my bank is drained and im getting tuned but i just wanted a definitive answer on counts and the ability of the stock maf .....thats it

p.s i have a pm from tom stating he could tune my car with the stock maf WITHOUT THE MAFIa and it will run with adding the mafia later ,so knowing that i am boosted ,and i keep reading that the stock maf cant read the velocity/density of boost ,then why would tom tell me in a pm that it is tunable without the mafia im just confused here a lil bit .....

The xcal3 is 379.00 shipped and the boosted tune is 550.00 total 929.00

Yes I can do a tune for the stock MAF then change over when your ready to a MAF ia
