MVRK - DIY - MAF Conversion, Ostrich 2.0 Install Instr

Postby mvrk10256 » Wed Nov 30, 2011 5:39 pm

So another full day of e30 work has come and gone, and I have a car that runs like shit.
While the fallowing DIY is maybe a 4/10 in difficulty, it become sa 10/10 when you consider you have to tune it yourself, I am currently working on establishing a tune that actually works well with this system, but I am a total noob at tunerPro and tuning in general so this may take some time. UNLESS YOU ALREADY HAVE A TUNE, KNOW SOMEONE WHO CAN TUNE, OR KNOW HOW TO TUNE YOURSELF DONT EVEN START THIS.


DISCLAIMER: IF YOU FUCK UP YOUR CAR ITS ON YOU!

-Volvo MAF (PN 0 280 217 107(1 275 749))
