I have a 1989 Mustang convertable that originally had a 4 cylinder in it. I bought a 5.0 fuel injected 302 out of a 1989 ford crown victoria and i was wandering if the computer out of the crown victoria would work on my mustang. I know the 4 cylinder computer in my mustang will not work on it i was just not sure if the crown vic on would hook right up to it or would i have to change all the wiring?? thanks alot

50 swap

your best bet i to find a wrecked 89 5.0 and use it as a doner car, you will have to swap the rear brake line, fuel lines, rear axle, trans cross member, is it a stick or an auto? i would find a 89 conv 5.0 to dismantle, you will need the headlight and main engine harness as well as the computer, im just finishing a swap from a 91 5.0 gt to a 90 lx notch 4 banger, i had to get the engine wiring from a 89 gt because ford changed the engine harness in 91, i had to run wirers that are missing from the engine harness and the car, if i had to do it again i would definatily get the same modle year,
good luck!!
