KILLED by an Orange in North Phoenix

Hey everyone, i own an '04 SRT-4. I was driving home from work this evening when i saw an Orange SS coming up on me on 32nd Street, just south of Thunderbird. The first was from a dig but he had to shut down, the second was from maybe a 50 roll. I got massacred by at least to cars by the time we shut down at around 100. Anyone know who it was? I wanted to talk to him, but he didn't stop for anything. He had a supercharger (spool), but i couldn't tell what else. I have minimal mods, waste gate and stage 1 chip. This is the first time i have run into one, good race whoever you are.

no idea, but he must have been modded to kill you that bad. probably a smaller pulley and a maf-t.

maf translator... tricks the computer into thinking everything is running stock so that the comp doesn't throw codes. it's pretty much the only way of tuning right now.

not sure about the first part of your question as i'm not an expert on maf-t's that's why i have never used one. it's basically only if you want to run bigger injectors, smaller pulley, etc. maf stands for mass air flow, as in the sensor in the intake tube that sends messages to the pcm.

i don't know, you can email intense racing and ask them, they use a maf-t in their kit.

MAF stands for MASS AIR FLOW it calulates the air flow entering the engine to adjust the amount of fuel needed. The maf-translater just mods the signal to the pcm to tell the pcm its getting more air then it actually is so the car will add more fuel..
