The easiet and cheapest way would be to sell your 95 and buy a 96.

I just bought the truck ,and your right had I known I would want /need to do a MAF I would have looked for the right truck. So is it PINTA to swap over the parts from a donner 96?

I have never done that swap personally.

The biggest catch I can see would be that the 95 is OBDI and the 96 is OBDII. I don't know how putting a 96 PCM (OBDII) into a 95 truck (OBDI) would work out communication wise

auto trans trucks? I don't know how that would work. The PCM controls the motor and the trans. Do the mustangs come with an E4OD?

If your bronco was a manual, this would be easy. My buggy is a 1989 Bronco 351 CD motor, converted to MAF with a mustang A9L computer, but I'm running a C6 trans.

unless you are planning on forced induction or a stroker kit, I wouldn't bother with a MAF swap. The reason I did it is because I eventually want to run a stroker.

I really don't think you'll see much throttle response change. I have a 94 lightning (all first gen lightnings are SD) and the throttle response on the buggy and the Lightning are basically the same.

a cam swap on a SD truck will not end well. Any sort of a mild cam will require a MAF.

I have swapped a 95 460 from a f250, into a 94 f350, which was originally a 351, but by far that was the easiest swap I've done, both auto trans and everything worked, but using a maf seems like a lot for a lot of nothing, I suggest just run it, when it comes time for a cam and what not, you may back out of the idea before then, and you would have blown a bunch of cash in the process lol.

I did the swap on a 95, used a 302 maf truck PCM and added wires to the harness as needed. I think I had to wire the injectors different cuz they are sequential fired instead of batch.

Ford Motorsport had a piggyback adapter that plugged into the ecm and then has a MAF harness coming out of it. I think I still have one laying around of you decide to do the swap Jeff.

I think that is why I just added to the harness, couldn't find one. That was probably 5 years ago.
