From personal experience, EL Fairmont Ghia's have it for sure.
Also my EL Fairmont (non-ghia) spits out SSPS error codes, so it may have it and it doesnt work, or maybe it was never put out with it im not sure.

fairmont ghia, fairlane ghia and LTD had SSS.

gli, futura, fairmont, xr6/8, GT, FBT did not have SSS.

This is for EL. and some series II EFs got it, but not all.

On the topic, I was asked a while back to remove the speed sensitive PS by a mate in his EL Ghia - he hates it and I agree when I drove it.

Is it easily doable to revert it to normal PS?

Cheers

How does that advice help remove speed sensitive PS?

You may like it but I think it's an utter piece of s**t that, like already said, feels dead and provides no feedback at all so you're completely welcome to get used to it while I wish to remove the turd and revert to a normal system.

Many thanks.
