What are the advantages of the Vitesse MAF kits?
Your car, in stock form, came equipped with a Vane Air Meter (MAF) also called AFM. Since then, the technology has evolved. Newer high performance cars come equipped with a Mass Air Meter (MAF). There are many advantages to running a MAF instead of the VAF/AFM. A brief overview of both systems will help you make the correct decision. The Factory Engine Control Module (DME) uses the VAF (or AFM) signal to calculate Load, Ignition and Fuel. The VAF same as the MAF generates a 0-5Vdc however this is were the commonality ends. General advantages of a MAF vs. AFM/VAF: – The MAF has no mechanical moving devices like the AFM – MAF is much less restrictive than AFM. – Stock AFM does not support hi-flow (kg/hr), once you reach a certain HP level, you max out the stock AFM. (You get max voltage). The stock 951 AFM flows in the 800-1000 kg/hr (or close to it), which limits its ability to support just 320 HP. A well-calibrated MAF can flow in excess of 2500 kg/hr and can support 1000+hp. – For mor
