    NOPE! The MAP is the Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor and is fitted to the bulkhead - just to the right of the throttle body. (lookin from front of car) roughly above and slightly to the left of the power steering pump.

    The AFM on the other hand is sometimes known as MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor, AMM (air mass meter) and of course AFM (Air Flow Meter)

    This is totally different thing!

    Now ur getting all confused.. What is it exactly u are on about?

    The Air flow meter (fitted on the air intake pipe) or

    The Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor (clipped onto the bulkhead)

    Certain models dont have an AFM and the X16XE is one of them but as this question relates to the MAP sensor then Yes it does have one...

    X16XE : AFM - NO............ MAP sensor - YES
