Okay I just bought my wife her dream ride of course a Bronco. It came with a motor with racing heads and some different came shaft I know it was originally a 5.0. My question is he said it wouldn’t run right without a fuel injection system that had a maf sensor and more sensors to tune it so what system do I buy? I do not want carbureted unless y’all can convince me otherwise but I hate carbureted.

What year is the Bronco?

Many like a Holley Sniper for a standalone engine management system. I’m not familiar with them any more than knowing they are common.

If it’s a MAF swap there’s lots of info on those. I don’t know much about them. But best of luck cleaning up someone else’s mess.

Welcome!

The EFI ford engines ran on either Speed Density or Mass Air Flow. Then there is OBDI and OBDII. OBDII is easier to diagnose codes.

MAF is easier to tune by the end-user for cam changes and injector changes. But speed density actually has more tuning capability and power potential. Its finding someone who knows the SD system really well that is the hard part. Many many new cars actually run on SD these days as opposed to MAF.

So, it really doesnt matter, you can get any cam to run on SD. But in its stock tune, it will need a cam with 114° of LSA. This is the main limiting factor.

We need to know what cam it is and what year the bronco is to help much more.

It's extremely likely that the Ecoboost V6 models will as it's standard with the other vehicle that uses the Gen II 2.7L Ecoboost. The I4 Ecoboost probably will not, as the the 2.3L Ecoboost used in everything so far has direct injection only.

I knew the pesky new Bronco would cause all kinds of confusion

It's a spammer. Nothing to do with the new Bronco. They quoted the OP and then added a couple of hyperlinks in the quote that go to their spam sites. They continuously get a little more creative each time. The info they post will vaguely be related to whatever site they post on, hence the non-related ecoboost comment.
