Computer?


I was looking through my garage and found 2 extra computers for my car I was wondering which one would be best. If there is any difference. I have an A9L on the car and the others are A9P and A3M. any ideas?

You can use either the A9L or a9P in a five speed car.. some go with the A9P because it has a slightly aggressive spark and fueling tables over the A9L but it's not a huge difference.

The A9L is a good computer. Some people have said the A9P has more aggressive spark and fueling tables and does not retard timing between shifts and the A9L does but I don't have any real facts to prove that.

The 93 Cobra computer is an X3Z not an A3M.

I found this somewhere and I've been saving it.

A9L is a mass air computer that can only be used on manual transmission car. A9P is a mass air computer that can be used on auto or manual. Both are great computers that respond pretty well to modifications.


A9L - 89-93 5.0L Mustang 5-spd
A3M - 93 5.0L Mustang 5-spd
A3M1 - 93 5.0L Mustang 5-spd
X3Z - 93 5.0L Cobra 5-spd
A9P - 89-93 5.0L Mustang Auto
A9S - 88-93 5.0L Mustang California
C3W - 89-93 5.0L Mustang Auto
DA1 - 87 5.0L Mustang 5-spd
J4J1 - 94-95 5.0L SVT Cobra 5-spd
T4M0 - 94-95 5.0L GT Vert 5-spd
U4P0 - 94-95 5.0L GT Auto
W4H0 - 94-95 5.0L GT
ZA0 - 95 Cobra R
D9S - Lincoln LSC
ZXA3
LLX3
CCA1
CCA0




It's just an internal (FoMoCo) code name.
