I honestly don't think that it would benefit you any to do so. The computer in your car is set up for your car; whereas a cobra ECU is set up for a 4v with totally different compression ratios and everything else.
Sorry if that's wrong information, I'm a mechanical guy, not electronics.

No. At best it would accomplish nothing, in practice you would likely lose power..

What kind do you suggest ?

I just got this car a week ago and just starting to learn about them, but I've always wanted a mustang. And I may not need a Ecu cause it'll move I dead even with a gsxr 600, and beat a Colorado extreme (3.5) with a turbo on it

I think you do not understand that you do not replace the PCM (Powertrain Control Module, Ford's name for the ECU) in our cars when seeking more power*. The PCM contains a programmable memory chip, an EEPROM, that holds the tune; using appropriate hardware and software tools the stock tune is downloaded, modified as desired and reloaded (flashed) back into the PCM.

The PCM is not removed or replaced.

-------------------------------------
* - There are aftermarket ECUs for our cars, however they are not needed other than in the most radical builds, 600 rwHP+.
