Re: mass air flow sensor(Maf) conversion for 97 stang
If the cam is only .500 lift, the Ford springs should work. However, I'd recommend running Comp's springs- they're probably the best spring company out there. Just look at the name- cam stuff is basically ALL they do. They know their stuff.
I like my FRPP King Cobra clutch, but pretty much everyone I know says to run a stock replacement unless it's supercharged. I know a guy who went through a FRPP KC like mine in six months, but went with the O'Reilly brand replacement for a cheap fix. It's been a year and a half with the same driving habits and he's still not replaced the O'Reilly unit. However, if you do go FRPP, get on eBay and find the Valeo brand clutch kits. Ford contracts out Valeo to build the clutches, so buy directly from Valeo and save $40 or more.
You may say, "Well... the Ford design has a better warranty...". Let me tell you- they'll advertise warranty, but on the box is a bright orange sticker that says, "NO WARRANTY ON PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS" so just get the Valeo and be done with it. You'll at least get your money's worth.
