'88 mustang didn't have a MAF sensor, It used a MAP sensor. I think they went to MAF in '91. We put one in a 4 Runner, what a riot!

I have a '89 out of a GT. I love it.

I found if you mimic the donor car as close as possible you should have less problems. I did not do all the wiring on mine but I can tell you it is a great conversion <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0"> Good luck and send pics when done.

Brandon,

I lost all of my diagrams that my buddy made when he helped me and I live in another state now. Could i get my hands on the diagrams? I wanted to have some in case I wanted to do another conversion in another vehicle. The only problems that I have is that I did not hook up the A/C sensors. I just converted it to an air compressor. It gives me four codes for the A/C.

Thanks, Tony

I swapped a 90 5.0 into my YJ.
Its a great off road motor.
They run cool,stay well oiled at low RPMs and on steep angle, and can run upside down.
Plenty of low end and high end, and they even get good off road mileage if you stay off the noisy pedal, except when you need it.
Like Brandon said, once you know which wires are what, its just a matter of hooking up a couple of hots, a couple dedicated grounds, and your guages, then start it up.
Good luck

AND, if you really want the easy route (and new wiring). Buy the FRPP sefi conversion harness for $200, with the easy to follow instructions. It's a 93 Mustang harness with the un-needed wiring removed.
