Default What is this on my Computer

So the guy I buy the car from months later he thinks something was done to the computer on my car! I pulled it out and this is what I found. Does anybody know if this is stock, Aftermarket or what it does. Its sttached to the top port on the computer box. The end of the wire that comes out is cut

Never seen one like that. Looks like somethin' aftermarket though. Very interesting. Did the car run ok with it in there?

Could this be a mass air conversion?

Without knowing what all it says on those stickers... who knows. I did a search for what I could read and I came up with a cellular GPS module that alerts you if your car leaves a pre-defined area, but that looks far too old to be either cellular or GPS.

I found a hypertech N2O chip in my ECU when I pulled it out.

Is there Zero 1988 Mustangs that come with MAF? Do they all have to be converted. I have found that the 8LD computer Is the California Emissions Version
