i just bought a 85 vette and it is running like [email protected]# and i am unshure as to why, it has no codes and i have replaced many parts it acts like it is loading up as cruising down the highway there is a strong gas oder but no leaks and it seems to be holding back and stopping and ideling is very rough i am thinking maf as i got this from a fellow vette owner and dont know if it works properly or if it is compatible with my 85 vette as it is off a 88 t/a dealer told me maf must be off a 85 is this true please help me out thanks...
