Keep in mind that they made a couple different harness' for the maf cars but one from a 89 should work just gotta check the plug ins down by the computer and the plug in by the master cylinder. Compare them to the speed density harness to be certain they are identical in every way except for the maf harness having the pigtail for the maf meter. If you can't find the correct harness you'll have to swap out the dash harness as well.

Tomorrow I'll show you the pictures of a maf harness that should work and show what to look for(I'll pm them to you) as I have a spare 89 maf harness I snagged for $50 bucks which is insanely cheap.

Ahh, if I had to do it all over again with my 90 I wouldn't haveet my friend talk me into ripping off my a/c stuff. It's nice on a hot day. It didn't work when I got it but would have loved to have fixed it.

Yes it is smooth, BUT I also love the raw, roughness of our old cars and the sound of the old 5.0 is hard to beat with anything else.

Yup, garage queen. I'd take it to all the shows. I'm hoping my son likes the foxes and maybe that is what he wants to restore. Then the fun begins.

Not sure, gonna check it out tomorrow. Might end up getting the aluminum driveshaft instead though, kinda partial to my 10s.

I kinda like how the spintech sounds on the 5.0 but it seems like its lacking the deep tone my exhaust has.

Yeah same guy, he only wants 125 for the shaft that was put in right before that video. He's dropping a 3v motor in it right now so he's selling all of his pushrod stuff.
