    Which parts should I buy, GM 5.0 or 96 Explorer?

    My car is a 90 Colony Park. The previous owner did the GT 40 Swap with both the heads and intake. I added a 65mm Explorer throttle body to replace the HO throttle body 8 months ago. If I replace the IAC and TPS should I order for a 90 Colony Park or for a 96 Explorer? The car has Mass Air with a 65mm throttle body and is using a computer from a 90 Mustang GT.
    Does it make a difference which sensors from either a 90 GM or a 96 Explorer or will the computer compensate for it?

    Plugs are different, the old stuff is generally fatter pins. The parts aren't actually different electrically, so get what plugs in to your harness. Probably 1990.

      Thank you Gadget.
      Yes, the stock sensors for a 90 GM are what's been working the past year and a half. Now there's an issue.
