By itself, a high level Maintainability Index doesn't actually add much value. You need to drill down and look in more depth - see what the maintainability is as you drill into the project, and don't forget to pay attention to the cyclomatic complexity. If this 80 was reflected all the way down, it would indicate that there weren't too many major issues, but your cycolmatic complexity is probably going to be high. According to Microsoft[^], they calculate the cmoplexity based on this formula:
Maintainability Index = Max(0,(171 - 5.2 * log(Halstead Volume) - 0.23 * (Cyclomatic Complexity) - 16.2 * log(Lines of Code))*100 / 171)
