I have an older (Im guessing as it is not like the newer ones or the photos I have found for setting them) Maf Translator I have no paper work for it as it was in the car when I purchased it. (Hidden)
I have attached a photo of it all I want to know is what dial to turn and where it needs to be to work with the 85MM MAF I have
Thank you

That's a Translator Plus. Score! You can adjust fuel and spark. The New/Current Translator only allows for fuel adjustment. Set the first knob (Base MAF) to 6 for an 85mm MAF.
7 is 10% rich. 8 is 10% lean.
Post a picture of the connectors.

Turbo Bob has been email with me. The Translator I have has no settings beyond 4 (Really Old) He said to leave it on 3 but still same thing starts stumbles and dies. It has the 3 to 5 Plug adapter on the MAF. Im most likely stuck with the 3.5 LT1 Style MAF just wanted to get rid of the restriction between the Big Mouth intake tube and 4" Inlet pipe seeing I have the 4" Opening on the turbo . Suck is life I guess.
Waiting for Bob To reply again gave him info he asked for

Yup as soon as I have $3000 to spend (God knows when that will be) I will be changing the ECU to either Holley EFI Or ECU-GN From Turbo Tweak
