Are there any real power benefits with the "AFM/Link" setup over the Split Second MAF setup? I know the AFM link is more tunable to a greater level of precision, but what else besides that? Any other advantages you can think of with the "piggyback" computer approach over the MAF one? It should also be possible to install a "hot wire" element into another intake (such as a DTM carbon intake) if you wanted to eliminate the stock Plenum and airbox if you were using the split second kit.

Around 900 bux, plus some dyno tuning time is strongly suggested, as stated in the article.

One of the guys has one in the dyno poll thread down below..maybe he'll share his thoughts on it.

I got rid of my AFM a different way that is more tuneable. I'm using a throttle position sensor and a MAP sensor plus a tuning box. I can tell you this for sure. The car loves it (dropping the restrictive AFM) and it makes the motor feel like it is larger and with sharper throttle response. Gigantic street driveability benefits. Less need to downshift and just plain faster. HTH.
