FORD MAF Conversion?!

Hello All -

I know there was a MAF genius on here at one point, who converted a $30 Ford MAF from the junkard to work on his N/A car. I have the FRWILK II Chip and was wondering if anyone knows or has tried the BUILD YOUR OWN approach to the MAF issue. I here it give great gains! so i am really interested. If little info comes to mind, a little direction would be much appreciated, for i am going to try to do it myself... dare i try!?

- Chris

Calling out to FRWILK - Are you there you electrical godsend?

Oh nice - good input. Too bad they dont make one for the N/A cars. It cant be that bad of a install, i am sure its just some wires right splicing here, some sodering there. !

You could go and make your own, using A ford MAF. SPlit second makes alot of good products that can help. I believe they sell a MAF calibrator that will help you get the DME to understand the madness. Also if your gonna go the way, I would recommend getting a WIDE band A/F sensor, this will help you calibrate the system based on A/F ratios

This guy knows what's up. The innovative LM-1kit is probably the best piece of equipment ever offered for dialing in air/fuel ratios. At the bare minimum, it's a great in comparison to a standard a/f gauge because it doesn't sit there and spaz out at idle. The baby reads accurate for every split millisecond it is functioning.

If you wanted to nearly replicate stock setup, you could set your AFM and the new MAF in series on a bench, and blow air through the pair. You know that the airflow through both of them is the same, so you just use your air/fuel controller to change the output until they read the same over the range of air flow you can produce.

That is, if you don't want to pay for a wideband O2 sensor, and tune it that way.

Basically, you need almost any MAF (needs to be reasonably big), an air/fuel controller, and either a flow bench, or a wideband O2 sensor.

Agreed the problem (and cost) isn't in the MAF, it's in the signal massager.
