I did this on my 90' GT. You dont have to swap the ecu, the stock one will work fine. And unless you want it, don't worry about the neutral safety switch. I always keep my car in neutral when parked so I have no worries about it jumping in gear. I took the reverse lights plug, cut the plug off, and hooked the wires directly to where they would plug into on the t5. If your unsure which goes where, just hook em up, and if they dont work, swap the wires. There are plenty of write ups on this swap too. I think installing the clutch pedal was the hardest part.

The reverse lights and neutral safety switch are two separate things. If you don't care if the car will start without the clutch pedal being pressed, then don't worry about it. If you do, then you have to get the saftey switch, and plug it in. I didn't care, so I just left it as is.

As for the reverse lights, I hacked into the stock harnes and just hard wired it directly to the t5. Its just two wires. It should be similar to the sn95, but I haven't done it on one of those, so I'm not 100% sure its the same way. If you have the t5 harness, you could obviously use that also.

Pretty much but I learend a long time ago to NEVER leave your car in neutral when parked. E-brake fails and you are on any sort of an incline and off she goes. I leave mine in 4th and if I'm on a level surface I don't use the e-brake. Saves wear and tear on the e-brake cable.
