    Bosch LSU4.9 isn't the best idea I think. It may have some advantages (no calibration required), but has many drawbacks. The biggest issue is its short service life.

    I am going to run a wide band O2 on each exhaust bank and leave them installed all the time. The MS can take the signal from them and use them so that each bank has its own signal which makes for easier tuning via the data logging. These will simply replace the stock O2 sensors. There are several guys with Mustangs doing this for some time now and like the results and so far the wide band O2's are surviving just fine. I believe they are using the Innovate LC-1's but I will keep digging around to see if there are other options. Not necessarily cheaper, just better.

    Darren,

    I am currently "stalled out" with my EFI swap using MS 3.57. I believe I just need to add some RF filters on the Crank sensor wire and she'll run, but I'm glad I have other vehicles so I can walk away from it for however long I feel the need to. I'm just going to use a single LC-1 wideband for now.

    After years of tuning the factory ECU for boost, I would definitely pay the price for the PNP version. It works out about the same costs but gives you so much more including Knock control and the ability to ditch the MAF. If you wish.

    Check my build thread on my 83. I converted my 5.0 from A9L,MAF to MS PNP from EFI Source and love it. I have setup about 5 MS or Pimp conversions on 2.3t motors.

    My 5.0 setup cost me less then $500 and does everything I could ever want. Im not getting ready to install a blower on it next
