Default MAF ECU questions

OK here I am. I have a 1991 Mustang 5.0 HO engine with a hot cam and has been rebuilt .30 over with a 1986 T5 manual behind it. My delema is the computer sold to me is a speed density with all the wiring for a MAF computer. Go figure my bad. Well can a Automatic computer (ie A9P) for a 1989-93 ECU work with a manual transmission. I fully understand a manual tranny ECU (ie A9L) will not work with a Automatic tranny but I have heard otherwise about the Automatic to manual and plus the Automatic ECU is slightly Hotter in the highter RPM range than a Manual tranny car. Just for your information the engine is now located in a 1960 pickup. Any other advise is welcome and I am looking for possible gas mileage so please no carb information. If I was going that route it would have been a 428 or 460 in the truck instead. Thanks and I will look later in earlier posts for the same info just dont have a lot of time right now and I am sure someone is very knowlegable about this information.

You will be fine. With a manual tranny, you can use either.

See the section called "Are the A9L and A9P Computers Inter-changeable? "
on the following site...
http://www.freewebs.com/vristang/eecivfaqs.htm

In the Fox Mustangs the auto trans is not electronically controlled, so the ecu makes a relatively minor difference.

The timing differences are minimal in my mind.


either the A9L or A9P will do well...
(my grandfather used to have one of those trucks... very cool!)
