interesting!

I think it is the bosch L-Jetronic system that uses the mechanical afm. I originally thought that this system must have been outdated by the mid 80's as nissan went with the hot wire in the 84 300zx and never looked back. But I have seen mazda's with the afm (first gen miata) and I saw this guy lift the hood of his mitsu diamante at the tire store and it had one too. It couldn't have been older than a 90. From what I understand all the bosch systems that use the afm are rather similar and the afm's are intergangeable btw car companies. Mostly it just has to do with the size of the engine. Bigger afm's for bigger displacement rigs. I have heard that bmw units will work too, but have no first hand experience in all of this.
