Compatibility....

Does anyone know if the 96-98 Cobra 80mm MAF will work on a 95 Cobra? Will the ECU read the output signal, same connections? Thanks for the help.

Your talking a 5.0 motor with a 4.6 MAF, prolly not gonna work. Part numbers are different for the '95. The '96/97 are the same, but the '98 has yet another number.

'87 GT with a battery

As far as I know it won't work. I could be wrong though.

I've asked this question on other forums and still have no definitive answer. I was wondering if just the housing from a 96-98 would work with the 94-95 sensor placed in it. looks to be the same as far as bolting up goes just a bigger diameter flow through. Thanks

That's what I was thinking, that maybe the sensor would swap over. The problem with that is that the sampling tube probably isn't the same size so I'm not sure if it would read correctly.

Do you think a custom tune could fix that if it were an issue?

I'm not sure, but I'd assume that by the time you pay for the tune it would probably equal that of an aftermarket MAF.

The MAF would be installed along with the turbo set up in one sha-bang. I would be in need of a custom tune anyway and don't think this would be any extra if done at the same time.

I see what you're saying. Do you know where you're getting the car tuned? If so then I'd say the best thing to do is contact them and see if they can change the computer to compensate for the new MAF. The more I think of it the more I'm certain it's possible for them to do.
