Question 5.0 EFI induction question / problem

Running a 93 mustang 5.0 HO efi with eec 4, X3Z.The heads are ported stage 2, mild cam.

Looking at upgrading the upper / lower intake to Cobra/ tick flow/ edelbrock which is fair enough.

A well known member in here (AP) has a Tickford AU II 220 75mm MAF & a 70mm tickford throttle body for sale, which I am considering.

question: will my EEC 4 / X3Z combination run the above EEC 5 AU 220 75mm MAF / 70mm T/body?

any feedback appreciated.

The MAF has a different plug on it. You can change the electronics from your current MAF onto the new AU one, but I am told that it is not ideal. As for the Throttle body, again the TPS has a different plug on it so you will have to fit your current tps.

Yes, both plugs are different. Also the tickford throttle body is longer to acount for no egr spacer...

What about using an AU 'explorer' type manifold?

How good is the explorer type inlet compared to say, a trickflow street heat (I think that's what it is) or a cobra / GT40 intake? How about the edelbrock equivalent?

Anybody enlighten?
