Diablosport MAFia (96-04 All) F7373 - Free Shipping!
It is a MAF Sensor Tuner.

The Diablosport "MAFia" MAF Interface Adapter is perfect for applications where the stock mass air meter "pegs" due to increased air flow. When the MAF sensor reaches 5 volts, it "pegs the meter" maxing out the signal, preventing you from making peak horse power at higher RPMs, but the MAFia extends this signal allowing your Mustang to make up to 800 RWHP without "pegging the meter".

Don't know if it is compatible for sure. You will have to ask the sales or tech person at AM.

No it's not compatible, its a cheaper tuning option instead of buying a full scale tune. A tuner will tap into your MAF through the EEC and you tune what is called the MAF Transfer Function. This is how you acheive maximum horsepower. This Diablo thing will screw your car since it's not made specificly for your engine setup.

Thanks "97Stallion" for adding that extra Details on that item. Many times, people comment on items, but they do not give the extra detail that helps us understand, what's going on.

No problem!! The diablo tuner might give you some gains, but you would be better off having a dyno tune so you don't blow up your car. I tune my own vehicle and I've made 7 different tunes trying to get it just right.

That's not correct at all.
It is not a "cheaper" tuning option, it is basically a range extender/calibrator for the MAF and is made to be used with a tuner if your MAF pegs or maxes out.

It won't screw your car, it's made for the MAF not engine setups.

See this page - MAFia

The MAFia is a crappy tuning option. Maybe not crappy option, but not ideal IMO. I have yet to see anyones V6 MAF peg with a proper tune. This is why I recommend a dyno tune. My statement is correct, i just left out all the fancy talk you copy and pasted. And the reason i said it would screw your car is because you will get some run of the mill tunes to plug in and they will only be guesstimates not a true tune. this is why mail order chips are a waste of money. And it will screw your car if you get an improper program to play with. The MAF is a very delicate piece off equipment which deals with very precise values in the MAF transfer function. I'll take a picture of the SCT racing software to show everyone what I'm talking about.

It's not a programmer or tuner for the ECU, it's solely for the MAF band..
Mail order tunes are not a waste of money if they are from a reputable tuner and use reputable software, now if you ordered an eBay chip or an electric super charger, then... There are THOUSANDS of happy Mustang owners running canned tunes.
If you have just a handful of minor mods they are great, meaning a CDT is a waste of money for a CAI, exhaust, and some minor ignition parts. Especially at $300 for 3 pulls and tuning, not my opinion but that of FastLane and PCM, both are major dyno /speed shops. In fact both places said 'waste of your money'. Why would they say that if it were not true?

I've had two 95 GT's with SCT 4bank chips, a 5spd and an auto. Been super happy with the gains over w/o the chip.

Please read what I posted.
It is not a crappy tuning option and your statement is not correct. I am not here to argue with you, but you are obviously confused as to what the MAFia is and does. I was only trying to clear that up. The OP just asked what it was and if it was compatible with the SCT. He did not ask for an all out comparison or recommendation on tuning. Maybe you should read the "Fancy Talk" I copied and pasted? I did that to provide the OP with the best information I could find. Usually the people who manufacture or sell the products know more about them than anyone else, wouldn't you agree?


The MAFia is, simply a range extender for use when engine mods have increased the air intake capabilities of the engine past what your MAF can handle. Most V6 MAFS probably won't ever peg, but a full out forced induction effort V6 could just as easily as a V8. I actually took a similar, but different route for my car. I bought an ABACO MAF that can be tuned via any laptop or PC to ensure compatibility with a wide range of injector sizes and air flows. It won't peg, ever.


You are talking about tuning and dyno tuning and the MAFia is only a portion of tuning and it is directed at the MAF and not the entire tuning procedure or parameters.


Anyways, everyone is entitled to their opinions, so think whatever you wish.
Like I have said many times before, I'm not here to argue, I'm just trying to make sure the members get the most accurate information I can provide.


Peace.

The MAFia is generally only for high output motors!.. And anyone who thinks Trojan is wrong needs then to contact DiabloSport themselves!...
