Jet Mass Air Sensor

Threw on this Jet Mass Air Sensor today. I would have to see it on the dyno forsure but my top end feels alittle better. Anyone else mess with these at all?

They are crap. It MIGHT temporarily provide a tiny gain by missreporting airflow to lean out the overly rich factory hard throttle tuning but that under reporting will eventually be seen by the O2 sensors and learned out.

For FAR less money you could have gotten custom reprogramming that would have permanently corrected the WOT air fuel ratio, optimized spark, tweaked transmission shifts and more.

The aftermarket is chock full of JUNK designed to take your money MAFs, throttle enchancers, TB spacers for port injected engines, Tornado the list goes on, JUNK.

Many of us have been here and made these mistakes and we will help you avoid them IF you will listen.

Far less money? Jet's are only like $100, i'd never trust a $100 tuner.


And Jet Maf's are POS's. Next time you want to waste money let me know and you can send it to me.

When I looked it up the one I found was over $300 maybe I looked up the wrong year or engine, where I believe good tuning is down $195-225 range.

Maybe they've upped the prices of those shit boxes, but they used to run about $100.


Any kind of dyno tuning from a reputable shop/person is gonna run close to if not $500, retune fees depend on the shop. Handheld tuning will cost $200ish for a used unit and $150ish for someone to tune it unless you know what you're doing.

For basic common setups mailorder can work fine.
My car has never been dyno tuned, my car does require some back and forth with the tuner though it is not a basic setup easy to mailorder tune, still managed to do it though.

If he gets a Tornado, an intervention will be in order.

The secret is the two Tornados in a fernco coupler, because if I install a second one behind the first(in reverse rotation of course) I get twin-spiral induction, which is almost as good as a turbo. Throw in an IAT Power Box resistor and it should be good for at least 650hp.

You need to be very careful with that set up. The vortex can become incongruent and cause a high threshold culmination in the set up filtration box. Yes, you will go very fast, but not for long. And, when you stop, you will have cabin equalization issues.

You'll just have to pressurize the airbox with pure oxygen.
