Is it a 4cyl? If its a beta2 it might not have a maf. If there isn't a semi-large tube attached to your intake with wires coming off of it you probably have a MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor). If that is the case it is located on the front and in the middle of your intake manifolds surge tank (or intake plenum) . Its the black thing with wires coming out of the bottom. If that is the case that is also your IAT sensor.
I Want to purchase The tri-phase module from www.nextlevelracing.com they said that there device connects into the MAF sensor, from what you say my Hyundai coupe( tiburon 2.0l 4 cylinder) has a MAP/IAT sensor, is it still possible to connect this device to my engine.they asked if my hyundai dealer would know the correct wireto connect there device to, but thats not a question i could ask them(warranty!!!)
What is the other sensor on the plenum chamber on the right had side of the MAP/AIT sensor just past the throttle body.
I have attached e-mails between myself and next level racing(below)
That is quite different than the American Spec model, although many other cars
are like that here. Is Hyundai able to point out the correct wire or do they
not have that information?

Subject: Re: Hyundai MAF sensor?
The sensor on my car is located on the front of the plenum chamber(centre
of) past the throttle body,
It is the MAP sensor (manifold absolute pressure sensor) it is also the IAT
sensor (intake air tempature sensor)
There are four wires going into the wiring harness/sensor
Can the tri-phase still be used on my car, if yes, can you explain to me how
> to install it.
I included some information about MAP sensors
(The manifold absolute pressure (MAP) sensor is used to determine the
absolute pressure (not the relative to atmospheric pressure) of the air
inside the intake manifold and the atmosphere (barometric pressure). This
information is used to determine the density of the air entering the
combustion chamber, which is used when calculating the proper air/fuel
mixture for the engine.)
I am very grateful for your help

Your MAF sensor could be located further upstream from the intake tube. It
would probably be easiest to just call or stop by your local Hyundai dealer
and ask them to point it out to you.

My 02 Model is the same as the U.S. 2003. It is the new model? Hope you
still help me.Will the tri-phase work on this model. taking into account
that there is no wiring harness anywhere on the air intake.
Please reply a.s.a.p
Your ecm/maf wiring harness is located right on your intake tube,
your airbox. It is a 5 wire harness

Can you tell me the location of the ecm/maf sensor on the hyundai tiburon or directions how to install the tri-phase correctly.
The Tri-Phase is currently available and in stock for your Hyundai,

ecm/maf wiring harness. Once plugged in, all you have to do is ground the
module (anywhere you choose) and mount the control switches
(anywhereyouchoose). The entire installation process should only take you 20 - 30
minutes. If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to
This thing can not be hooked to your map sensor because the way a map measures air flow is by vacuum and a MAF by actual airflow by the resistance of a heated wire in the intake track.
I've been looking at this thing and at least to me it seems to be a done up version of the little resistors being sold on eBay. There is no way you can see anywhere near the hp gains this thing is claiming. All it does is richen the mixture from stoichiometric (14.7:1) to around 12.5-13:1 where a motor makes its peak power. It does this by fooling the computer into thinking more air is coming into the plenum than there is. The problem with this is you pre-cat, cat, and o2 sensors will foul out pretty quickly when you run this rich. Even with bringing the mixture down to 12.5:1-13:1 from 14.7:1, you'll still only see 1-5hp gains unless you do other modifications.
