The first yard I went to said they had a MAF for a 93 3.8 non SC motor. Well they brought it to me and it was the 55, same as my 89. I asked them if they had any others. The parts guy claimed 5.0, 3.8, 93, 94 all had the same part. I knew he was wrong, but oh well. They wanted $35 for the wrong part.

Scratch that, head over to the U-pull. Wow, lots of t-birds and Cougars today. 1 - SC that was totally stripped. Only usuable parts were the doors (glass still intact!). I took the Seat Belt track an motors because they were easy to get at:

Ka..Ching - $18 each. Took the left and right.

Found a 92 t-bird with the V-8 and quite a bit stripped off it already. But there was the washer bottle mounted right behind the header panel. I wanted to relocate mine so:

Ka..Ching - $6.00

And the big find! After passing the cars multiple times my eye finally caught it. A 93 XR7 with the V8 and the MAF still attached to the airbox. The sensor was removed, but it was the 70mm hardware I was looking for!

Ka..Ching - $2.00 (because no sensor)

I'm happy with the day. I'm bummed that it's the second time I've found an SC in this yard and it is totally stripped. But happy that I found some stuff I could use.

when you go next, if you see another scrapped SC, jot down the VIN, theres a post here thats registering all the dead birds, so we can track the number of SCs still on the road
