Please explain AFM vs MAP calibrations, and hybrid

Hello

I am new to flashpro tuning. After reading the flashpro help and forums, I would really appreciate if someone could give an overview, for those of us who are new, of AFM vs MAP tuning. Also, it looks like historically there were race/MAP tunes but now they are based on AFM with MAP added?

I have started with a calibration based on AFM and only begun to adjust for A/F with the afm.v vs s.trim.

Thanks!

Yes, that is a helpful definition. Is there any more detailed information available? For example, I would like to know what happens if I start with a calibration that uses AFM and then click "use MAP" in the calibration settings, will that stop using AFM? Will the maintenance reminders stop working? (like in the race calibrations) And what happens in hybrid AFM/MAP calibrations?

Thanks again for helping a newbie.

It will only disable the AFM if you disable it in the calibration. IF the calibration is not a Race calibration then you will not have any issues with the maintenance minders.

Thanks! I've also found some posts from 2009 to 2013 on the subject, but that's from older versions. Your information has been very helpful.

What are the reasons NOT to use a MAP-based calibration, if any? Thank you.

There is no reason not to

Will using AFM get more power?

They should be able to make the same power.
