88 tbird motor swap

What all is needed to swap in a complete turbo'd engine from an 88 tbird into a 93 2.3 5 speed? I would like to reuse the wiring harness from the N/A 2.3 and I don't care about A/C. I am searching the different forums but figured I would ask as well.
Thanks

I have the computer but was trying to decide if I could still use the wiring harness with the new ECM.

you can use the truck harness. it will need repinned.

you will need to either convert the harness over to run a dist./TFI or convert the turbo motor to run DIS, up to you.

These will help you along too:

92/93 Ranger wireing diagram


Turbo computer pinouts




This *may* help. The pin outs are for a 94, the wiring should be very similar to the 93, but not 100% correct if memory serves me right. Sorry I don't have the pinouts listed for the 93, only for my 94. Luckily the top diagram lists the pin numbers with the function.

Thanks guys, I'm a little backed up with flight school and won't be doing anything for a few weeks. I'm sure I'll have more questions so get ready.
