Misc Tech / Re: Rear Underbody Resto/Gas Tank Install

That's my plan/hope.  Didn't go last year, well, at least not with the car ... just walked through the swap on Friday.  Tentatively scheduled to get the car inspected tomorrow and then gotta get some miles on her.  Hope there is some good Fox T-bird/Cougar turnout.  I didn't see any Cougars last year and maybe only 2 or 3 non-turbo birds.  TC's usually show in decent numbers.

I was actually pretty surprised that I didn't see your car there. Would have been the perfect time to take home a first place trophy...and all of the other trophies!

"DONE!" ... still have some small odds and ends to finish up, but everything is back on the car.  Installed the driver's side tailpipe, tightened up all the exhaust fittings, and installed my new rear sway bar.  Also got my door molding put back on.  Getting my state inspection done next.

It looks good! Going to have enough time to get it inspected?

So a calibrated maf tricks the computer with voltages. If you have a computer setup for 19 lbs injectors and you install 24lbs injectors in the vehicle and use the stock maf you will run very rich. 24/19= 1.26 so your calibrated maf will tell the computer it has 1.26 times less air in order to compensate for the higher flow rate of the injectors. That's ALL it does it tells the computer you have 1.26 times less air with the voltage. So you take this same calibrated maf and pair it with a computer setup for 24lbs injectors and guess what it will do? It will tell the computer you have 1.26 times less air, therefore you will be too lean which is worse than too rich if you ask me. You would have to use the maf for that EEC or tune your computer which is what I did I run an A9L with 47 lb injectors and a pmaf, my software allows me to change the maf transfer (voltage the computer sees from the maf) and injector hi and lo slope and a lot more . Calibrated mafs work OK but aren't perfect. Fun fact, at light/part throttle the computer uses airflow to calculate ignition timing as well.

Thanks.  Have followed some of your posts and I take it you worked there?  I have the Kenny Brown adjustable upper and lower rear arms as well as their subframe connectors ... all were purchased around 15-20 years ago now ... hard to believe ...

I worked there until '01.

I'm the reason those parts ever existed. ;)

Many thanks!  Yeah, they kinda disappeared as an available item not too long after I bought them ... Probably got them in '99 or '00.  With all the newer non-fox/non-SN95 Mustangs, a lot of this niche stuff has gone by the wayside.
