    is it possible to use a mas airflow sensor before the throttle body for my boost setup so i do not have to worry about the map sensor reading boost? and yes i know i could just use a missing link or check valves...but is it possible and can i do it with a factory computer?

    I doubt it, they work differently and require different inputs.

    Mass Airflow = warms a small wire in the intake stream and tests the impedance caused by the wires temperature at different throttle positions.

    Manifold Absolute Pressure = measures manifold pressure oddly enough.

    If your gonna use hondata for fuel management you can use a GM 3 bar map sensor. Then youll have a good setup with no check engine codes or anything.

    using a MAF with a stock ECU would be an exercise in futility. You might as well re-write the ECU's program from scratch.

    Ya, this kid is funny... When I turbo'd my truck I got rid of the MAF and went MAP... You're a very troubled individual dude... If you want to run boost on your stock ECU go to www.pgmfi.org get the DIY tools and keep your map sensor! :p
