The issue at hand is best application for my 81 flareside.

Two questions are haunting me.
1- Can a mass air stang system be used with a aftermarket f-150 intake and throttle body.
2- would I be better off with a total stang induction. (33" tires and 355gears 4x4) From what I have heard, the Edelbrock f-150 intake helps with mid range torque.

I know the firing order between a HO and f-150 is different. (HO same as 5.8L)

UUURRRGGGGHHH!!!!!

I called and asked SVT this question, they couldn't give me an answer.

One thing I thought of afterwards that talked me out of trying it is that the computer will think it is calibrating for a 3500 lb. car instead of a 4500 lb. truck, so all the parameters will be out of whack.

Cant computers be programed with "chip therapy"? HAve been told that aftermarket computers are available that can be. In my Mustang, am using an A9P for the auto but have been told it can have a chip added??

Wow,
I never thought about the comp thinking it was still a car. mmmmmmmmmmm.

One option is using the mass air system out of a truck, but then I loose my SEFI. I might be limited on what cam I can use as well.

More investigating is needed. I will continue seeking. I will keep you posted on what I find out.
