Can i use my computer or do i need a new one?

I am thinking about swapping my '95 mustangs 3.8L engine with a '95 thunderbird supercharged 3.8L engine. It creates 210hp instead of 145hp. My biggest question is, can I use my current computer or do I need one from that car?

Yes it can mount up the same ull have to get a aftermarket inter cooler cause the tbirds rad and inter cooler are side by side there little .. I had plans on doing the 3.8 sway into my new edge even found a full engine and wire harness with computer for 350 but I was Gonna use my new edges computer still might do this swap but I found a 302 for 500 with harness and computer so I'm stuck on the projects as to which to do .. Most would hand down do the 302 swap cause it bolts straight up to my new edge's k member with out modding it .. Only thing that has stopped me is the wiring of the EFI on the 5.0 to my new edge ... Or I was thinking going carbureted with one fire wire start
