    If you have the wiring harness and computer from the car that you got the engine from it really shouldnt be that hard. Everything should just plug right into it. IM sure if I am wrong in some aspect the guys oon here can help clear it up too.

    Forgot to add that the engine wiring harness should be seperate then the rest of car so you would only have to change that harness.

    Im thinking that it is a fuel injected motor right?

    You are going to need that computer and wiring harness from a V-8 stang. What I would do is go to a wrecking yard and pull the computer and wiring harness out of a V-8 stang there. But that is me.

    Ive been thinkin bout puttin a mod motor from a 03-04 Cobra into a Ranchero. The only thing I would need to do that would be the engine wirin harness and computer from one.

    In your case all it should be is a plug and play. The computer would already have everyhting for the fuel inj and all that programmed in.

    Seriously if you don't know anything about FI then your not in for a good time with v6 to v8 conversion.

    IMO> if you dead set on going with a FI set-up, don't fool around with some used stuff, spend some money and get one of them programable systems out on the market, Eldelbrock, Accell and many other companys are making some nice kits with good step by step instructiosn to make things a whole lot easir than rumaging around a junkyard trying to fetch a processor or a wiring harness that hasn't been hacked up.
    Goodluck, Cp

    The commercial units that are now available (as stated above) are literally Plug and Play systems. ALL the probs are designed out and the top brands have VERY good serviceabilty. Plus you can tune them with your laptop !!

    Actually, I was writing about a Hilborn MFI, which I should not, and will not recommend for a street car. Hilborn offers an EFI set-up, I know nothing about it. Once again I should have kept my big mouth shut.
