Ever consider that restrictive flap inside your Air Flow meter? You can tweak the AFM's
performance by making the spring tension a little looser. But has anyone REPLACED
their AFM with an Air MAS sensor/meter? An Air MAS sensor/meter offers almost no
resrtiction. It uses a small heated wire, versus a spring loaded flap to provide feedback
to ECU.

Is there some cross reference? That is, to replace an '82 turbo AFM use an ? year Air
MAS sensor? What about the harness? Does the ECU need to change?

Thanks,

Chuck

The easiest, though not the cheapest, way to do that is buy the setup from Jim Wolf Tech. He sells a conversion kit that uses 300z injectors, ecm, and mass air meter. If you want minimal restriction use a programmable system. They all use MAP sensors to measur airflow. The only restriction in the intake would be your filter.

This guy's page might give you some info. Just saw it while browsing and remembered your post.
