Mass air will make the ecu respond better to mods.

I haven't heard any reliability issues for any of them. Apparently 91 and older have some minor issues (tab/tad solenoids?? and ac), but that's about it.

I have had a 94 gt, 96 gt, 94 cobra, and numerous fox body cars. the 96 i had trouble with it overheating first year for the 4.6. ford fixed that problem in later years. i like the 94's because the body was new and it still had the 5.0 power plant. i would go with them if i had my choice. 4.6 cost more to do anything with. fox bodies are hard to find not wrecked and in good condition. 94 and 95 are just right you get the best of both worlds.
