Yes should work fine, the a9l is a five speed mass air computer. All u have to do is move some wires and plug them in. Don't forget to take the vacuum line off the map sensor next to the vacuum tree on the driver side. I think it's a BAP sensor on non mass air, but once it's unplug it will be a MAP sensor.

I need to swap my 86GT which is I believe speed density over to MAF sense I will be going turbo I was told getting a maf would make it much easier to tune rather than using something like megasquirt. However do I need to swap out my entire harness that I have from my 86 GT to go MAF? Just slightly confused sorry.

You don't have to swap out your entire harness. You would just need this conversion harness, a mass air compatible computer and mass air meter to perform the swap. This harness splices into your existing wiring harness.

I ordered this as well as economy fender cold air intake. Disconnected battery and followed instructions to a "T". Also ordered Pro-M mass air meter (75). First of all, cold air fits poorly. It's about an inch off when trying to attach at throttle body following video instructions from your site. So everything is cramped together tight, not lining up well. My car is 88 gt convertible. have A9l rebuilt ecm. After checking everything 3 times, car will turn over but not start. I removed vacuum from map sensor and sealed off manifold vacuum before trying to start. It smells like it is not getting gas???? I put old speed density ecm back in and reconnected map sensor and moved ecm wires back to original positions. It still won't start!!! After several attempts. smells like no gas getting to injectors??? Please help.

Yes. A mass air conversion on your 88 will require an 89-93 mass air computer along with a mass air meter. You'll also have to change your cold air intake if yours won't accomodate the meter.

As long as the 89 gt still had the mass air computer in it then yes the harness will work. The computer Should have a computer code designation like A9L, A9P or A3M are the most common codes used in Mass air cars.

You will need a computer from an 89-93 Mustang GT or LX 5.0. It does not matter if it is a 5 speed or automatic computer if you are using a 5 speed but if you are using an automatic you would need the automatic computer. You can not use a computer from a 4 cylinder car.

It seems for the conversion to work right you need to splice in to the VSS and also the fuel pump relay under the driver seat. All the other kits I've seen include the wiring for this and this one doesn't seem to? I would rather order from you guys, so can you please elaborate on this?

U don't have to splice into anything. You pull your ecm out and move some pins around and connect the wires into the slots. It's very simple and has great direction. Just remember u will need to buy a mass air computer for your car and take the vacuum off the map sensor on the fire wall next to the vacuum tree.

I have a 87 GT which was once a automatic AOD transmission
I have done a conversion to 5 speed and the next step is the MAF conversion
What computer should I get? I will be getting this wiring kit, I have the meter and housing, and can get a C3W computer.

I have a 1988 5.0 that the previous owner did a MAF swap but I'm not sure if he did everything correctly with the pins and wire splicing because it doesn't run right. He used a 1988 Cali MAF computer if that makes a difference. He put o2s on it as well but the car just floods itself out and fouls all the plugs after idling for a couple minutes

I would make sure all the vacuum lines are correct and check the bap sensor that is beside the vacuum tree. the vacuum should be disconnected and the bap then becomes a map sensor. Also get yourself a fuel pressure regulator adjustable with a guage and make sure its not got a bad regulator on the fuel rail. as for the harness if you unplug the mass air now what does it do. email me email@example.com

I have a 90 coupe that used to be 4cly car.it is now a v8 car 5.0. Who ever did the swap did a speed density set up.and now I'm trying to do a mass air set up.the car runs and drive great with set up but has cam and so air and fuel is not right.so can I use this conversation kit to do it or what can I do.i do have a masssensor and the ecu a9p

As long as you have the maf and the ecu, assuming nothing has been cut up, this kit will give you what you need to get the swap done even if it is a 4cyl swap car.
