replacement computer for the a9l and a3m, was installed in some late 93's and is what you used to get from Ford dealers when you needed an a9l. Only main difference with the a3m1 is it has a 7000 rpm rev limit, and it has to be modifed to accept aftermarket computer chips.

Stang pie...if you have a regular A9L I will trade you
Someone said it was an auto computer....The auto computers are A9P's right? This A3M1 is a member of the A9L family so I thought it would be a manual tranny computer. Can anyone verify wether the A3M1 is m5 or a4?
the a3m and a3m1 is part of the a9l family, it is not part of the a9p family, thus making it a 5 speed computer. The 5 speed computers can be used on auto cars, however one of the o2 sensor wires needs to be moved on the harness, so you don't burn out the sensor.

On the last car that I put an a9l or equivalent manual trans computer in that came from the factory with an a9p computer (automatic) I had to swap one of the o2 sensor wires so it wouldn't burn out the sensor, it was an 89 car so, it might have just been wired wrong, however I have talked with a couple of other people that have had to make the same change, so YMMV. I have never done an automatic computer in a 5 speed car so, I'm not sure if you would hafta do the change on it or not.
