ALL mustangs, whether SSP (police) or regular cars were ALL mass air after 1989. I can't be more clear here. I have owned one since 1993. If "Tom" says differently from that statement he should be fired as that is basic information.

Click on picture. My part # is 12a561ab so maybe we both are right.
How can I be misinformed when I am talking with Ford TEC. This unit allows for a more aggressive parameters than the run of the mill ford cars.
I have read high HP drag cars use speed density controls and not MAF but I donot know
Right, but the Ford SD as it comes from the factory is not suited to high HP applications much beyond stock.

Plenty of high HP cars use SD but just not THAT one. lol

Occasionally, I come across someone who still has the hardware necessary to do a "piggy back" on the old SD boxes. I used to have a TwEECer that was SD compatible.

That box was probably something you'd find on 351-equipped Crown Vics.

I had a tow truck driver explain to me once that he used to own an 86 Mustang and it was a former cop car and it had a 427 in it. I'm thinking I should have asked if he checked with Tom at Ford.

Call Ford Tec. Ask for Tom
You should probably have Tom call us. In this thread alone, there is more than 100 years of Mustang experience. :shrug:

I'm certain that there's an answer to the mystery. :hide:

The image you posted looks just like the ignition system that came on my 1981 Grenada.

I don't need to call anyone. I was part of a group who ordered 20 ssp mustangs in 1993. I still have mine. It was mass air as they all were in 1993 and had no special computer. Actually, it had nothing at all done to the drivetrain different from a production mustang except for heavy duty hoses, oil cooler, etc. HP was the exact same as production cars.
Sorry for all the trouble, my mistake. After much research this unit was used on 1984 to 1993 351w engine Crown Vic. Police cars with a variable venture type carb. only. Computer was for fuel air mixture. Again I was just trying to see if someone knew something about this module. Some people are just to sensitive.

That is not what you asked, asking for information starts with a question not a statement.

I think you should tell Tom at Ford Ser. He is wrong. Thanks.

But seriously a statement isn't a question.

I agree. I am far from sensitive but as was pointed out you didnt ask a question. If you did we probably would have had a much different response.

Here is a thought, the crown vic police cars had 351 engines in them and were speed density, I think that part likely is a crown vic part not a mustang

The 351 Crown Vics actually ran a Variable Venturi carb up until 1991.

The 351 was discontinued in the Panther platform after the 1991 model year. 1994-2003 would only have been equipped with a 4.6L 2V. 4v if it happened to be a Marauder.

We have enough knowledgeable folks around here that we usually end up at the bottom of it sooner or later.

Everyone has a piece of it. That's why forums work and bookface is for comparing wheels and exhaust.
