The Guy probably has no idea about these things. Send him a message and ask him to change it to "EB-EL 5.0 HO standard 55mm MAF". $100 is not bad if it's a good'n.
If he doesn't change the description by all means abuse the s**t out of him.

No one's gonna buy it anyway. You could probably pick one up from a Ford Dealer for the same price or less.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure my mate bought one of those from the FD in town and it cost him less than $150... He did know one of the mechanics there though.

Yeah I find this quite a lot when I was trolling ebay frequently I'd send people info to correct there auctions on a regular basis, most would, occasionally one wold either be playing s**t or decide they know better, their is a report function on ebay for cases like that.
