Community Q&A Question: MAP vs. BAP Sensors

Asking About: Mustang Standard Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor (86-88) 5.0


MAP vs. BAP Sensors

I was wondering what the difference between your MAP and BAP sensors is? I have a 1988 5.0L GT and would like to know which is the better application for my vehicle.

Speed density equipped 1986-88 Mustangs use a Map sensor to measure manifold vacuum. Mass air equipped 88-93 Mustangs use a Barometric air pressure sensor (bap). If your car was built in california, it's equipped with mass air. All other 88's were speed density. Look for a mass air meter on your car. If you don't have one, it's speed density.
