Ah. so does that mean that the heat soak of the MAF does not matter so long as the air-charge is really not soaked? I don't know enough about the changes the computer is making based on a registered air charge. It would seem to me one could get much more out of the turbo if the actual and perceived air temp were close or the same measurement.
