    If tuned right for both, they are equal in power output.

    Until you can outflow the MAF, its not as evil as people think

    Oh hell I strongly disagree. I agree from a maximum RWHP perspective...but you can SD tune so many more parameters that makes things much smoother...gets you a much wider power band........I didn't say MAF's were evil....but they are restrictive from a fine tuning perspective.
    This is my signature. It is mine. Nobody else has one like it.

    I agree that across load ranges a good sd tune would be better, unless you take a trip from Southern Texas to Denver Colorado. Then I would prefer to have the MAF.

    When I did my car, I tuned SD first. Got the VE and everything perfect. Car ran great. Thru the MAF back and it ran like crap. But once I recalibrated the MAF, there was no difference.

    I think you'll find that on many other cars that end up doing both. Just takes awhile to get both in line.
