I have a 4cyl 1990 car and I just bought a 98 explorer with a 5.0 and automatic. how can i get the ecu and harness from the explorer to work? the mustang will have a manual in it so how will i get the ecu from the automatic explorer to work with a t5?

It is my understanding only the engine is used for the swap, you will need to get all the wiring from the computer to the engine and I think the instrument cluster/wiring too, so many things needed most buy a clapped out v8 stang for swap parts. On top of that it will likely need to be a 90-91 car because of wiring changes.
