I've thought about how it could be done and have an idea or two.  I would think since the MAF sensor has to be calibrated to work between sea level and probably 10,000 feet that it would respond accurately since that's what would change: The Mass Air Flow rate.  Of course, everyone knows what happens when one "assumes" something.  The mass air flow at 10k feet with Ram Air is probably similar to that at sea level without it.  I would think the MAF sensor could handle it. However, the technical specs of the MAF and Powertrain Control Module (PCM) are what dictate the possibilites.

This could be of benefit even to those that have fitted a larger supercharger - Ram Air would get more working fluid through a larger or smaller supercharger or turbo and through the engine at a lower temperature than without Ram Air.
