That's pretty crazy. Is it an early 88 year model made in 87? CA cars went mass air in 88, that's why I ask. They are the only exception to the rule I know of.

85 was the last year for a carbed mustang, after that it was standard equipment.

Usually speaking yes. In the states typically 85 was the last year for carburated cars and 86 was the first year for EFI. 87-88 were speed density and 89-93 was all mass air cars, typically. Most guys will do a carb swap because they are more comfortable with the tuning and you don't have to worry about the computer and harness as much.

And they're usually cheaper to re jet of you need more or less fuel.

Pretty much hit the nail on the head.
