90 and 91

are NOT the same

my 91 sbec is designated a "HI TORQUE". 90 series isnt. 92 the cruise control circuit changed among other things and is a standalone year. 91 is basically a standalone year also. there are several differences between the 90 and 91 car. the 91 carries a PDC and the engine harness is NOT applicable to a 90.
essentially the cars are VERY different. the headlight module in the 90 is deleted for 91. also the dash harness is different. brakes are different..etc etc

regardless..

if u have a 91 car search for a 91 hi torque SBEC.

NOT a 90 or a 92.

what you may want too look for is a 1990 MP SBEC for the 5 speed.

i have a 90 MP sbec but its for an auto car. they are out there.

More or less, the 90 and 91 SBEC ARE the same, meaning they are interchangable. They are BOTH SBEC I's. Yes the 91 is considered a high torque, but i had both of them in my lebaron, and really did not feel that great of a difference honestly. They will both work.

The 92 SBEC is ENTIRELY different, and will not work in any car other than a the year it was intended for.

sbecs

yes i agree they are mostly the same..but i have had issues in interchangeability amongst 90 and 91. well not me but this guy i tried to help.
i know my 91 ran great on a reman 90 5 speed sbec. anyways...

for example , I just sent a guy on this list a sbec for his 90 shelby 2.5t1

i sent him an mp sbec out of my personal car. a 90 shelby 2.5t1 a413
the mp sbec is for a 2.5T1 AUTO..

he gets it installed the car starts right up.. then dies and wont restart.
now i tested the item before i sent it in my buddys 90 2.5t1 a413. it worked.

so anyway i send him another sbec.. that wont work either. starts the car,, runs for 2 secs.. then dies. wont restart guy sent me videos with sound!

dealership tells him..
>>I had the Dodge dealship call me about the setup
and here is what was said" Your car is a early model 90, the late model 90 and 91 cars 's computer gave a feedback voltage from the Ignition switch to the computer to make it run, this is why with the other computers, the car shuts off..
i have never heard of this anybody else??

they say the mp sbec spans the years for 90-91 yet it wont run his car.

i slammed the mp sbec he sent back in my 91 it started right up.

so whats the deal here. :bang head
