5.0 Ranger Questions

Hey guys and gals, I have a 94 ranger with a swap from an 86 TBird. It is a good clean swap complete with a nice shifting AOD. I have a GT40 top end I am wanting to bolt on and just had some questions. My truck does have MAF and the orange top injectors. I do not know if these were on 86 birds but every number I have pulled says the engine is from an 86 bird. It is a very clean install and everything works. I am pretty sure it has a non roller cam but does have the roller block (if my research is correct) I would like to go with a complete engine from an explorer but do not want to change my harness out. Is there an ECM that will plug right up and do I just run the HO firing order on the dizzy? And will my current FI setup work? Thanks in advance.

You'll have to use the computer and harness out of the salvage vehicle the engine is being pulled from.The first link below is for 302/351 swap into 83-97 Rangers.The second link is for a (96-97.5) 5.0 Explorer engine into a 98 and older Ranger or a (98-01) 5.0 Explorer engine into a 99-up Ranger.If a 98-01 Explorer engine is used in a 98 and older Ranger,you'll have to deal with the PATS system, which gets explained in the second link below.
