Default Jet Mass Air Flow Sensor?

I came across the Jet Power Flow Mass Air flow sensor for the Camry and Jet claims better fuel economy and horseys. I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with this or have any knowledge of it. I am very skeptical of this MAF sensor as I think that it would send an incorrect sensor to the ECU to maybe run lean. Any thoughts or opinions? I think I might save my $200 on this one, but if it works, I am listening.

Many reviews about this device are positive yet doubt it does much of anything and like drugs may have a placebo effect.

Your thoughts are correct as why would Toyota design a sensor that works incorrectly. Their MAF and ECU would be designed to work together. Replacing a stock MAF with something else is going to cause issues with the ECU programming.

If wanting to trick the computer one could develop a plug-in electronic device to alter the MAF signal and install in the wiring between the MAF and ECU.

Thanks for your reply. Yeah, I think I am going to save my $200 for something else (even if I had an extra $200!).

Yes, but drugs can be determined with a help of special tests https://exit-5.net/, and of course it still can be fooled and bypassed though....
