I am all with You on that.
I am wondering how many times , if any, an 737 AOA unit has been installed wrong to this extent, and were it was found out, ie on ground or airborne?
If never, then procedure is good.
The fact that a miss-installed AOA on my 737- 800 is not doing much more then making a lot of rattle and making me work hard for some minutes on the QRH as opposed to the MAX that will demand me to take prompt action on that semi- runaway trim , if not A/c becomes uncontrollable as so tragically demonstrated, SHOULD demand of the Maint Procedure even more rigid adherence and double checking!

I wager the procedure was the same, even with the potential for dramatically worse outcome on a different aircraft.
I have seen this on the Dornier 328 Turboprop when they certified the D328 Jet: Same airframe, lots of cut and paste, small details not applicable ( Propheat ciquitbraker being the nobrainer in QRH)

I am looking forward to fly the MAX next year.
