Unless you want to tweak it I guess.

Not used to working on MAF's...too used to Chrylsers without them lol.
It's not only a matter of whether they are 0-5V sensors. They do not give equal values at equal airflows within that range. Meaning one expects a linear signal, and the other an exponential signal. You can't just splice one into the harness and get it to work well. The ECU will **** the bed.

I don't think a MAF sensor is required in order to use a piggyback unit like Apexi's SAFC-II, it can also be used in combination of the default AFM according to Apexi ...

For a stock 318 I wouldn't expect too much from it. But a likely 5 HP is possible though...

It's more of an important mod for turbo-ed and supercharged engines

ZeroG- Was there anything else you had to change out when you upgraded to the Euro MAF? Specifically for the DASC is what I'm interested in. I know that the TechniqueTuning stage3 upgrade uses a different fuel regulator. Are you using the fuel regulator that came with the DASC kit, or did you have to upgrade it to work with the new piggyback controller?

How hard was the air/fuel ratio controller to program? Did it require dyno time?
