Found A ford motorsport MAF

Heard of them but never seen one until now. Wish they still made the plug and play pigtails.

So I'm intrigued.... I've never heard or seen of one..... Is it a piggy back to your existing speed density ECU and just adds the MAF? And where did you find it?

Yeah it's a plug and play. Instead of rewiring the 4 wires with the new MAF kit they give you these days. This one just plugs in between the computer and the factory wire pigtail or whatever you want to call it. So much easier and cleaner. Don't have to sadder or move your factory wire around in the pegs. Found it on a 88-89 wrecked Lx 5.0 car. Why they don't make them anymore is my question. I think the ford dealerships use to sale them and then after those body styles went out. They had a 3rd party company or something, produce them and sale them.

That's awesome! I'm really surprised that was still on the car!

Yeah I did my conversion years ago but willing to swap it with this one to clean it up. Use the one for another project. Or I've even thought about keeping it for a quick test on cars for a while.

That's a good idea! With a spare MAF and the intake tubing or shouldn't take more then a few minutes to add it in.

In your experience did doing the conversion help with any erratic idling you had prior?
Mine will surge from time to time trying to find its happy place. Sometimes is 750rpms and others it's 1,000.

Helped mine out 100% and have had no problems. Maybe take some time and go back over the wires and see if some aren't connected tight and sodded well. Another reason this plug and play I have is awesome for. No questions about it. Why someone doesn't get the rights to making these is my question. Also maybe check vacuum lines. Maybe one is lightly loose.

Nice, yeah that would seem to he the easiest way to do the MAF conversion!

I'm going to undertake mine soon. I got the one from fiveology racing.

Oh you haven't done the conversion to MAF yet? Only reason I had to do it was because I put a cam in it. Idled really rough and sputter when hitting the throttle. Shook bad and sounded choked etc. maybe trying searching the web for a MAF like I found.

Yeah, mine is still in a box waiting to go on, lol! Just like my GT40p heads, explorer intake and some other odds and ends.

Question, what cam did you go with and did you put it in with the stock 86 bit time end?

I put the b303 cam in mine and yeah it all stock motor other then that. Bought it years ago in high school. Talked to the guy for a while on which cams to buy with a stock motor and maybe a few mods I may do in the future. Said he liked the sound of the b303 cam. Lot of people want the e303 because They believe it's has a little higher specs and people just automatically thinks it's better and faster ha. Still tell this day I'm glad I bought it. Sounds awesome. I hear e303 on youtubes and not a nice lobe sound. B303 to me has a nice consistent sound. Maybe depend on exhaust too. I'll try posting a video on here
Of the sound of the b303.

With all the other mods you have. May want to look into that. I believe you can't do much other upgrade has heads with the stock block. Have to put different pistons in or else they will hit the heads. At least what I'm told. Could be different with explore/stock cobra heads. Those maybe work. I could be wrong but that's why I haven't done anymore. Let me know if I am wrong ha.

Nice! Yeah, I was wondering about the piston to valve clearance with a cam and the stock 86 bottom end since it has the flat top pistons. I'd like to do a cam upgrade and 24lb injectors.... I think with the booster compression with the flat tops it has some potential, but I don't want to bend a valve in the process. What heads and rockers are you running?

I was originally thinking of sticking with the stock cam and running either 1.6 or stepping up to 1.7 roller rockers... But If you are running a b cam without piston to valve clearance issues I may look into it.

I'm only running a b303 cam. Stock heads and all. I bought ford racing 1.7 roller rockers when i bought my cam but come to find out they wouldn't work with a cam and have to go 1.6 roller rockers. Still haven't bought those either because they really don't give you any horse power. Just friction is all. 24lb injectors will be to much too. I was thinking I needed new Injectors and asked around and they said stepping up to 24lb injectors would be to much with a basic stock setup.

Sounds great! I've always been a fan of the b cam. I think I'm going to keep the stock rockers in the GT40p's I've got for now until I can build a bottom end for it and use pistons with some valve relief. It's good to know a b cam will work with the stock 86 internals. How's the car pull?
