Caleb mine is a hot wire.
The 85 was a vane style ie flapper door MAF
Arguments Pro Con
less restriction to the flow of air
more accurate in all temps
With it you get a crank angle dist. as Craig says, which is more accurate for firing fuel and controls ig. timing.
Quicker responce to air flow changes
with it you get the ECU controled over boost fuel cut
bit more fragile than vane
Has a tuneable spring loaded vane, less spring tension = richer mix
Has a over boost switch which can be easily unplugged
Moving mechanical parts
Some restriction to the air flow (has to push the flapper open)
Standard distrib. with vacuum advance diaph.on side.
Hope this helps, if I missed anything or errored, please chime in
