MAFs on 86-92 CV?
I know as soon as you read the title your going to say BS.
Well, I just had a WTF moment with my crown. I was doing my check over (testing spark, fuel, timming, and see if stuff got wires loose or what ever). I got to tracing wires again (its turning into a pass time for me). I got to looking at the brains wire loom, took the covering off, found 4 wires that go no where (right around where your 2 big plugs go for the injector harness). Just these 4 nubbed off wires, doing nothing....... Factory nubbed, not backyard mechanic nubbed off. I traced them to the brain, just 4 wires chilling out that go to the brain. So, I went over to this mustang GT wire loom I have and looked, the same 4 wires, color and all, match with the MAFs plug on the mustang....... That was my WTF moment..... Did ford put MAFs on this but decided to remove it cause its not a performance car? Perhaps it was an idea in the works? Or are these just 4 useless wires from the brain? I know it wouldn't be the first time, my 85 had 5 wires at the same spot that did nothing. This friday I'm going to match the wires with a MAFs plug and MAF I have and see what it does. Now, if this does work, I'm going to be pissed at ford, if it doesn't, I'm going to make it work :)
Now I have seen these kits that turn non-MAFs cars into MAF cars, but for mustang only, and mustang brain no work with crown vic (I still don't understand why ford did that).
Oh ya, my crown is a Jan of 87 P74 with a 5.0L Fully loaded LX sedan.
