which is what "they" were talking about.

now,

if you're on stock ecu and bandAIDZ (aka voodoo box) then yes you are stuck with attempting gay reach-arounds like moving it post bov to make it feel less crappy. but its still not going to fix the issue properly

so basically this thread is about OP ditching aids and getting a proper ecu like a man
FTFY

Well there's no way for me to find out I'm wrong on something without posting and being corrected.

I'll go Google around and study up on the workings of speed density

One step ahead of you... my MS3 will be here before the weekend

Definitely need to read up on speed density, as I guess that's what I'll be using. The MS I got is coming with an IAT, so I've got that covered at least... now to look into how to delete the MAF?

And then you can fill it with a low durometer poly, cut a slit in the middle, pop that bitch in the microwave for about 5-8 seconds, squirt in some Energy Suspension poly lube, and go to town.

It's a good time. Best use of a MAF, hands down.

One could probably make a speed density sensor right? Just a sensor that that threads into the manifold and has a pressure sensor and a temp sensor with enough insulation to not be affected with heat soak.

I mean not practical, but doable

I'll save you the 2 minutes I spent measuring and hopefully the 2 days I spent not ordering correctly.


You want one of these: Silicone Turbo Hoses

And 2 of these: Turbo Piping

They only have an 'add to cart' button, so for the joiners make sure you change the number to 2 before you checkout. I didn't and got 1 joiner and 1 coupler, cost me an extra $10 in shipping for the second joiner.

The 2 joiners are a bit long, in my car they are touching in the middle of the coupler, but for N/A it will do. Also the GM IAT sensor won't fit in the stock NB IAT sensor hole, so wrap that bitch in electrical tape until it does.

I'll probably do it more correctly whenever I get a turbo set up... for now, I went with the more ghetto way of just disconnecting the MAF, breaking out all the plastic in the MAF housing, and drilling a hole in the side to screw my AIT sensor into

I do appreciate the link though... will save 'em for later in case I decide I wanna drop a few bucks to do my intake right.

Why in the world would you do that? I have no clue what the **** you're trying to do.. you say you got an MS3.. why the **** are you ******* around with a MAF? Run the ******* temp sensor in the intake, the MAP in the manifold and tune the ******. ******* toss a filter in the middle of this bitch behind the headlight or somewhere.

You must've read what I said wrong...
I'm not using a MAF. I said I hollowed out the MAF housing to use it as a place to install the AIT sensor (the stock air box was removed and replaced with a cone filter).
Pretty sure the MAP sensor is built into the MS3 (I ran a vacuum line from the intake to the MS).

Exactly you dont need the maf housing to install the temp sensor. You can bolt that **** anywhere. Zip tie it to the outside of the filter. For a NA car it will work fine since u dont have a turbo to heat up the air after that.



Oh well I'm guessing you had no clue but the maf sensor goes for 150-200 ish bucks.

I know I don't NEED to mount it there... but if I were to remove the housing all together, I'd have to replace it with some other hard tubing, or I wouldn't be able to attach the filter. So out of convenience of having the MAF housing already, I just used it. Plus it looks pretty

Didn't know I could flip it for that much , but it's far too late now... YOLO

I recently discovered that unless you don't care about scalpel like precision in your tune, or proper mat enrichments, it needs to be in direct airflow or it will cause all kinds of inconsistencies. Had it just laying in the bay for a couple days of tuning, then put it inside the filter. Much more consistent now.
