My 2003 5.0 conversion is about to begin

Hey guys, I'm about to start the swap in about 2 weeks. Trying to get it running/driving within a weekend too. Truck is an 03 reg cab 3.0 5spd. I bought an 01 expo 5.0 2wd. I snagged everything i needed and got rid of the carcass. I'm putting in the m5odr2 to keep it 5spd and I also have the 5.0 computer loaaded with a tune for manual trans (auto turned off) no PATS, and no rear o2 sensors. Ive had a hell of a time trying to find out exactly which wires need to be repinned @ the main c110/c115 plugs to mate up and make this thing run. Ive been on ebay and cant find the 2001 explorer 5.0 evtm or the 2003 ranger 3.0 evtm. Any input I would be greatful for. Ive read all the forums and have seen similar swaps but nothing pertaining to the c110/c115 thank you!
