  • Modern PerformanceInc. Mass Air conversion

    GRM Feb 05.
    There's an article on converting the S38 B35 M5 injection to their mass air piggy back.
    Anybody familiar with the outfit, the gadget, and the support?
    I think it's a little short on info but it may or may not undercut the SS system in price.

    Yeah, Modern Performance has been around a while providing MAF kits for Porsche and Mazda I believe. I think they advertise BMW kits but I know of no one who has it.

        Absolutely, with nothing regarding BMW.

          They have been around for a long time and while they don't advertize BMW stuff, they supply kits for the e28 535 and e30 M3. Possibly for other BMWs too. Their kits sells for around $550 whille a Split Second would be around $850. Their kit is pre calibrated specifically for an engine type and is possibly easier to use than the Split Second kit which may require more time to set-up but can be transfered between several chassis/motors.

              Cheers all.
              It costs about the same as the SS when you do parts inventory, plus WOB kit plus new stock Lambda sensor, plus Dyno time.

                I have their MAF kit conversion, fully laptop Programmable ignition, fuel and timing. I'm still in the process of baseline tweeking before I take it to the dyno, so far I am happy with the conversion.
