Re: Finally on the road

Looks like you have a bit of work ahead, but not too bad.

I see you're guards are on duty too.

Nice! Might wanna check the harness plugs drivers side near firewall and plugs down by computer on both cars. Might have to get one from an 89 as the 91 is an airbag car and the harness may be different.

You'll need more than just the computer for mass air tho. Also if it's a A9L computer in the other car it should work for mass air(that's the 5spd maf comp) and I think the a9p is the auto(can't remember) but that should also work.

The auto trans computer will work (89-93).
The only difference I can remember is that the auto computer is not as aggressively tuned as the manual computer.

That appears to be a 94 computer.
It would probably be easier to use one from a 89-93.

This... And 94-95 ECU's hate mods.. It will be easier and less future headache to get a 89-93 ECU

I don't think the plug in or wiring harness is the same.
I suppose if you change it all out and add whatever sensors the SN95 uses it will work.
Not sure though, never heard of anyone using them in an older car.

The car I got it from is a 93 body but it must had a different motor the computer was left in the car hooked in the wiring harness so I'll have to check the rest of the body to see if the whole harness is still there

If it's just going to be a daily driver why not just leave it speed density?

The U4P0 computer is for a 1994-95, automatic transmission car from what I could find on it.
I don't think I would use it, but it is your choice.

If it's the factory quadrant and cable, you can reach up above the clutch pedal and feel for a little T handle, pull that toward the drivers seat I believe and you should be able to move the clutch pedal. That will adjust your cable, but it might already be stretched out.

This works great a couple of times. If it does not work you can adjust it at the tranny where it meets the shift fork. If both of these are maxed I suggest a new HD cable, aluminum quadrant and firewall adjuster. These items can usually be purchased as a combo for fairly cheap. These are good upgrades for any mustang with a 5spd IMO, especially if you upgrade the clutch.
