What cars come with 70mm MAF housings? I am looking to upgrade the MAF on my 92 GT to match my TB. I know they come on 94-95 mustangs, thunderbirds, crown vics and lincolns. But does the 70mm MAF come on any other vehicles I can use for my 92 GT? F150's? bronco's? Taurus? tempos? I only have access to a small junk yard and limited on choices. Thanks!

70 MM MAF & sensor interchange
The 94-95 Mustang 5.0 MAF & sensor is also found on:
1995-94 Mustang 3.8L F2VF-12B579-A2A,
1994-92 Crown Victoria 4.6L F2VF-12B579-A2A,
1995-94 Mustang, Mustang Cobra 5.0L F2VF-12B579-A2A,
1994-92 Town Car 4.6L F2VF-12B579-A2A,
1994-92 Grand Marquis 4.6L F2VF-12B579-A2A,
Evidently the –A1A, -A2A, AA, etc. on the end of the part number is a minor variant that did not change the operating specs. You should be able to ignore it and have everything work good.

Ok but what about using a housing from a diff. vehicles and using the stock 92 MAf sensor? I got a 70mm from an explorer but not sure if I can switch out the sensors?

I want to measure mine. It doesn't look that tall.

You can't just swap the sensors. Each sensor/sampling tube is matched to the size housing its in.

He's correct.

The MAF body and sensor are designed to match each other. Therefore you can't swap sensors between different part number MAF bodies and maintain proper calibration. The only thing you can do is a one for one swap of sensors with the same part number. The MAF sensor/MAF body assembly is designed to match the computer’s internal program, and swapping a different MAF can upset the computer's calibration. The 70 MM MAF & sensor from the 94-95 Mustang and others in the list I posted is the only exception to this rule.
