so i've been fiddling with a 5 litre EB wagon. i would like to get rid of the maf for some more powahs. i was reading something the other day about using a speedo corrector to fix up a tacho signal. could the same be done with the pip signal to alter the percieved engine speed ? i figure it's a hall effect signal so why not ? change the few things i need to and use an el computer with a j3 chip to run it all. hook up the fans while i'm at it. i'm working under the assumption that the el setup is batch fire anyway.

would this work ? or do i need to leave the crack pipe alone ?

Yep, lay off the crack

All the V8 falcon's were sequential. A proper MAF won't hold the engine back anywhere near as much as going back to speed density. Just get a chip for the V8 ecu you already have

only ls1 owners do that.
Ford drivers buy the appropriate meter for the engine.

fit an aftermarket ecu, then you can ditch the maf..
