Why Turbocharging? Simple advice for beginners

The MAF measures the air flow into the engine. This data is mainly used by the engine controller (ECU) to determine fuel injector pulse width. The MAF output is also combined in an algorithm with the outputs from the crankshaft and throttle position sensors
to determine engine load. This influences both fuel and ignition timing.
