Computers

I was looking at upgrading my SD to Maf, (it's an 86 gt). As I was reading up on the swap, it looks like you really need to do the maf, wiring harness, and computer at the same time. Correct that if I'm wrong. My question is the computers...I've read that many people use the DA1, and I've heard a lot of people using the a9l. Any advice on what computer I should be trying to find. I'm looking at eventually doing a stroker 331 or 347, or doing a 351. The car is t5, and I'm looking at 400hp street car.

U have to do them altogether. The da1 is a SD com n it won't work with the swap. Need to look for a a9l or a9p com.

Ok, what do the computers do? Are they just newer versions of efi computers that are more efficient? I know the benefits of converting SD to maf, but what is the diff in the two comps u mentioned?

I know they control the efi, what I meant was are they the comps used in late model mustangs, or were they the ones used in late foxes?

Come in late model foxes. A9l is for a 5spd maf car n a9p was for automatic. With a 5spd u can run either. With auto u have to run a9p

Cool thanks...is there no aftermarket computer that supersedes these? I'm just surprised that no one has made any "improved" computers...guess I'll start looking for the a9l.

No computers I no of. U can get a custom chip burned from bama tunes when u start modding with h.c.i. just helps get the most out of your mods.

Not really one that supersedes them but there are some piggy back setups like the Anderson pms that allow tuning in the car vs a chip.
