    I HAVE HEARD THAT THE 94-95 COMPUTERS SUCK AND THAT A A9L WILL HELP A LOT ON TIMMING AND IDLE . THEIR ARE TWO 5.0 NUTS IN MY TOWN AND THEY TELL ME TWO DIFFERENT THINGS ABOUT PUTTING ONE IN. THEY BOTH SAY IT WILL HELP BUT ONE SAYS THAT I NEED A JUMP HARNESS AND THE OTHER SAYS THAT I DONT. SO WHO IS WIRGHT WOULD I NEED A HARNESS OR NOT? :help2:

    Tag for a good Vendor for the kit.

    I do know that you have to run a MSD 6AL or 6 box to run it with the 94-95 Distributor. My Ex-girlfriend had that set up in her 94-95.

    The 94 GT I just bought has a MSD ignition and I think it hinders performance. I want to take it off, put the stock ignition back to normal and get a AFM PMS or the Tweecer [ sp ] and get it tuned that way.....MSD is all that it's cracked up to be

    as for the msd box if you plan on any performance it helps and if you use a blower its a must.

    You can't just plug a A9L computer into your stock '94-'95 harness. The pinout is completely different and you'll end up frying something. I switched to an A9L computer, but when I did it I used a PMS harness for the conversion and put the computer under the carpet - with the piggyback it wouldn't fit in the stock location.

    PRO-M used to make the kit, which consisted of a jumper harness and a control box for the radiator fan.....
    PMAS has a kit as well, all it comes with is a set of instructions to relocate some of the pins on the 94-95 harness so that you can plug an A9L computer to it directly...and it comes with a control box for the fan as well.....

    I've said it time and time again but I wouldn't bother with swapping the ECUs. If you can't find a tuner competent enough to get your car to stop surging with out swapping the entire ecu....you need to find a new tuner. PERIOD.

    As for the MSD hurting performance....I laugh. You're not going to pick up 60hp from just a box install but you're not losing power either.

    If you needed to swap ECU's, you either need to relocate some pins and get a fan controller or get the no-longer-produced harness. Again, I'd figure out wtf is wrong with your car first.
