As long as you have the correct wiring harness for that computer to be hooked to a 302. 88 HO engines are the same engine as a 89. No diffrence. However.....88 HO engines didnt have MAFS unless it was a California car and in 89 all of the HO's had MAFS. Just make sure you have the right wiring harness for that 88 ECM and you should be all good and if your 89 came with a MAFS and the 88 ECM is not a Cali ECM then just dont use the MAFS. Hope all this helps.
