He is falling for the literature from the vendor that states it reduces the restriction of the MAF by 45%. The MAF has a small restriction to begin with.

There is no way that the cars computer will try to protect the drivetrain because the aftermarket MAF creates so much extra torque. Especially at 5 MPH.
