94 - 3.8 to 5.0 Swap?

doing motor swap on 94 3.8 auto 4spd with push button OD, this car is DIS....car engine harness is a 42 pin out connector,cars trans harness is a 16 pin out connector. got a 98 explorer 5.0, which is also DIS, with engine i got engine harness,engine control computer, transmission harness....explorer 5.0 engine harness is a 42 pin out connector...explorers trans harness is 38 pin out connector...

would like to know if any one knows how i can make this car run as a DIS car.....can i splice the two harnesses together, or is there another way.

NOTE: car does not need to pass any emissions... so now that crap matters if it works or not.

You're in uncharted territory for me.
I know you will need to use the 5.0 harness, but I don't really understand what you are asking if both engines are DIS?

You will have to get a Chiltons manual with good wiring diagrams and compare the two to see what the differences are.

You want to be careful doing that or you are likely to fry some electronics or the ECU.
