Correct. You cannot flash the 93's 60-pin EEC-IV PCM (OBDI) with the program from a 104-pin EEC-V PCM (OBDII).

Unfortunately, you also would not be able to simply drop the OBDII engine, PCM and harness into your truck without making other changes.

The engine harness will not plug into the engine bay harness. Beyond that, possible speed sensor or evap system problems. Depending on the year of the donor, there could also be PATS and fuel system incompatibilities. Probably more.

This approach might work. You'd need to see if everything is compatible. 2001 and newer 2.3's cannot be adapted this way.
