I have a 80mm MAF (for a Lightning), how well will this work on a Stock 93 Cobra Engine ??

What size is Stock for an 89 5.0 anyways ??

89 5.0 would be 55mm. I doubt that 80mm is going to work with the Cobra computer , but I might be wrong. People on here suggest the Pro M 77mm.

I believe it still has the OEM 89 5.0 EEC. Not sure yet...

The 80mm MAF is OEM for Lightning ??

How well will this work on my 89 5.0 ??

Stay away from the c&L 80mm. I ran one on my car for almost 2 years worked fine with all my mods til I added A holley systemax. I talked to the techs at vortech and D&D motorsports they said the 5.0 didn't flow enough air for the 80mm and it was designed for the 4.6s. My car ran better with the Mass air unhooked. I got my Pro-m yesterday and boy what a difference.

Hmm... :confused:

Yea, this 80mm MAF is off my 93 Crown Vic w/4.6. It's actually a MAF designed for a Lightning.

Would I be better off selling this MAF and buying another size or what ??

A little off topic but the C&L 80MM is for 4.6's like you said or blown 5.0's. I have one on mine and it works quite well.
