There is no harness to make this work, you need to make it yourself. You need to get another ECU connector from another truck, and remove the pins from it to get the extra pins you need.

It's not hard, just need to be careful and take your time.

Ok I was mistaken then , I thought I could get one off a 94/ 95 maf e4od lightning and work into my harness... or the other route http://www.rjminjectiontech.com/coll...to-maf-harness . But if you could further direct me in the way u performed your conversion it would be of great help.. any pictures ??

There's no such thing as a MAF lightning.

We basically manually made that harness you linked. Pictures aren't really going to help unfortunately.

Basically what you need to do is look at the pinouts for the 460 E4OD truck, and then change it to the 94-95 E4OD Mass-Air 5.0 computer pinout. Ford Fuel Injection has all the pinouts.

Your injection harness is bank fire, meaning it fires half the injectors at the same time, so only has two injector wires. You need that conversion harness to add the MAF wires and the extra injector wires.

I found a FEZ3 PCM for my truck. That's a '96-97 460 with MAF and California emissions . It's Ecc V, and 104 pin.... Got a PCM pigtail from an '01 expedition , some pins will have to be removed and some added in. Paid about a ridiculous $600 for the overlay wiring harness. No instructions included, so I got my Haines manual and started reading wiring diagrams...

Why do you keep looking for lightning computers? The only MAF lightning computer was one offered by FRPP as a conversion kit. They're pretty rare, and you won't be any better off by getting one, as it still won't run your 460 without tuning.

You need a 94/95 F-150 California 302 E4OD computer with the catch code HOG0, HOG1, WAY1 or VEX1.

You're going to need the computer, the mass-air conversion harness (or DIY), and a tuning shop. If you're running a pro-charger, you're going to need the mass-air sensor before the throttle body, after the super charger.

Very nice! I want to drop a 460 in my 58 f100 panel truck. Have you guys seen the boss 429 conversion kit you can do to the 460? I want that!!

I actually have a MAF computer for a '95 302/351 laying around here somewhere.... I'll see if I can find it and get the box code. I'm prob never going to use it, as the truck I had bought it for ended up getting stripped and a carburetor now sits on top...I also have an '86-88 mustang MAF conversion PCM ( just the PCM and MAF sensor) ...saw where somebody had a 460 w/ C6, I think his best route would be early mustang PCM such as this or A9L....much much simpler conversion When not dealing with the E4OD

I didn't get my harness from any truck, I just added the wires I needed to. I'd recommend you get that harness kit you linked. It will greatly simplify your task.

A lightning MAF is not ideal in a blow-through application. I'd recommend a slot-MAF. I'd recommend a PMAS HPX.
