I found this item on ebay and was wondering what exactly this would do for our engines. i know it is mass air flow as opposed to an airflow meter. are there any gains to be had?

I have one currently on my car and it works fine for the money......its a little bit of a PITA for the person tuning your car lol, cuz it uses knobs and theirs no digital display or anything....if you don't care about the AFM still being on your car i would go SAFC. I got the MAF Translator because i have a bigger turbo and the stock AFM doesn't fit on the intake pipe i currently have.......It looks really nice not having a AFM tho and i have the MAF sensor on my intercooler pipe down under the bumper where you cant see it......Im about to go standalone now but the MAF Translator works decently.

The main reason people buy this is so they can put the GM AFM after the turbo, in "blow-through" mode, so that when you vent your blow-off valve to atmosphere, it doesn't flood the engine, because you are venting unmetered air. But I've heard of a few guys saying it doesn't work that great in blow-through mode, and have trouble tuning it.

What all does the MAFT kit consist of? Anybody have a pic of everything? Level of difficulty of installation?

thats what i plan to run... i hope it works out well.

also if you unplug your stock o2 sensor and wire a wideband into the maf translator, you can tune your partial throttle settings i believe. it will throw a cel but will allow a good deal of tuning. theres a lot of writeups on using them on supras just do a google search and you'll find plenty.
