I am using it with the Extender chip and I like it. I disconnected it when I was using the Lubrant chip because it would not allow the MAF to read more than 230-240s. When I disconnected it with the Lubrant chip, MAFs went to 254.

That reminds me. My MAF maxes out at around 215 on a wot run. Should I be reading closer to the 255? Is my Advance Auto Parts MAF showing signs of being crap?

After lowering my FP I do have better cold start, but idle is still not what I would like. (Just for kicks, I'm gonna try one of my hotair Maf's and see what happens). Tuning is fun!

I see a Boost sensing option in my future. I don't see why Steve won't give me his since he can't use it!

So you can use it without problems while running the Extender chip? Is this because the newer type MAF sensors are internally temperature compensated?

Yes Mark, and as I've recently learned its best to remove MAF comp when using the 3-3.5" sensors. Its too hot out of I'd have tried it in my car. Too hot to tinker


ZAP, a hot air probably wont outflow the MAF, nothing personal, its just that you cant turn the boost up high enuf. Unless you got a cam and headwork which will increase airflow.

Zap, what you need is a Sense Booster. I think Ken sells those as well.


Jimmy Da Testa...what is the maf comp...oh, bet you mean compensation?

Mark, yes, the ME for the translator removes the temperature compensation from the chip.

Mark,

I get the same MAF readings using the Extender with or without the boost harness.

I use the TL boost sensing harness all the time. I am currently using it with an Extender chip and it works great. You should mention it to your chip guy though, because there is a correction they can make in the chip so that you will still max out your MAF readings.

I wouldn't do without it at the track. I think it is great know ing exactly what boost you launched at and if your boost changes at all throughout the run etc. It would also be fun to try a JC boost sensing chip, but I haven't done that yet. Too much damn $$ invested in chips already anyways!
