Freelander with the L series doesn't use the MAF sensor to control the fuelling. It is the same (but slightly different) setup as in the 200/400/600 intercooled L series diesels.

Best performance mod for these is a TU1/garf/evry mod to up the fuelling and manually wind the boost up a little. 19psi is the usual max level.

ok and thanks. psi is at 19 and happy with that just wondered about the bypass mod but as Freelander they don't do things simple.

Evry Mod is very simple to do and makes a HUGE difference to driveability. Worth looking at in my opinion.

The freelander also doesn't rely on the MAF for fuelling so it is a LOT more reliable.

thank you for reply. I have done most of the mods and I am happy with what I am getting from the Freelander and fuel is still good on her. I have done the egr bypass and the dcat as well moved the pump timing a bit and put a cone filter on as well. at the moment in in progress of doing the intercooler pipes but as it is the Freelander I cant use the rover upgrade pipes so sorting it out myself with new rubbers and aluminium pipes.

You only get a good performance benefit from upping the fuelling. Trust me you'll be glad you did!

im happy with the top end power as she runs all day long at 80/85 and I have some power lefted if I need it she only slow on tack off witch made wonder about maf bypass. as for top end more power and then I need more stopping power to slow down.

MAF sensor is not used for fuelling control on yours. You can unplug it and remove it entirely if you don't believe me. It'll make no difference to the running of the hippo

Evry mod makes a HUGE difference to drivability making towing much much easier. My 600 will happily tow a car trailer with another 600 on it. (not legally in the UK but it'll happily do it).

DIY certainly possible just a few wires and resistors. Dasterly Dan will be along shortly I'm sure as he has just got himself a hippo and already done the mod so he can confirm the wiring colours.

Whereabouts are you in the world?

will admit, I don't usually look in this area (I considered it a "dead" area tbh) hence how I've missed this


from memory, It's the yellow/black wire, and the red wire. Fit a 2k variable resistor across the two, and sit it inside the car for easy adjustment. I've found once you've got it set, you never really need to touch it again
