I've been trying to find a reman A9L or A9P ECU computer without luck. I don't want to buy an unknown good/bad. I tried Advance Auto who said they had one but when I went to pick it up it was a California dud like an ALD or something like that. I called Caldone and they said none at their manufacturing facility (although since they don't sell direct I'm not sure they even checked.)
Does anyone know of a reliable source for this unit or a way to tell Advance or Auto Zone what actual car or number to run? Does Ford still sell these units? Does anyone know what Ford part number they might be?
6-14-10 update: I used a cross reference parts number of E9ZF-12A650 and by the luck of the draw the one that came in to Autozone from Cardone as a part # 78-5611 turned out to be an A9P, exactly what I was looking for. Last week I tried a cardone part # 78-5610 and got an A9M but will probably return that in favor of the A9P. The A9P is actually for an automatic but prefered for it's more aggressive advance curve. BEST PART....IT WAS ONLY $71.99 W/ NO CORE CHARGE!

I needed a new EEC last month after finding the one I had was bad. Looked them up online at Auto Zone at the recommendation of a fellow forum member. After finding one with a Ford part # that matched the A3M1 I had (Called my brother, who's a Ford dealer parts manager, and he confirmed that the A3M1 is an identical Ford service replacement for the A9L), I went to the local Auto Zone. Gave them the bad one, so no up front core charge, and ordered the remanufactured one. Cardone Reman/Engine Control Computer (78-4352) | 1989 Ford Mustang 8 Cylinders E 5.0L FI HP | AutoZone.com They don't keep these on the shelf in my area, so a two day wait for shipping to the store. Cost me $82.99, has a 1 year warranty, and works great. Here's what I got, first pic is the reman part#, on the flip side from the original Ford label:
Mk 3.1 #7172 / Viper Red w/Pure White stripes
308 / GT40P heads / TFS Stage 1 cam / Crane roller rockers / Explorer intake / 65mm TB / 24# 75mm Pro M MAF/ March pulleys
Cobra spec T5 / 3.73 8.8 / Konis all around / 15" FFR Halibrands
