I have a 93 with a blown e40d I'm looking to replace with a c6 I have a complete late 80s parts bronco with the c6 both have the 5.0 I know I need to use the trans mount transfer case and drive shafts. Thinking about putting a slap shift in the floor what all would I need to do for the swap and would I have problems with the computer. If so would the one out of the parts truck work?

Manual computer would get it done, the one from the late 80s truck should work.
You will have to re-do the NSS switch to make it start correctly, simply wire it into your floor shifter.
to do it 100% correctly you would need the kickdown brackets from a efi/c6 Bronco, though I never installed it on mine. Its fun to down shift manually (at least with a good valve body it is).
Computer may run it as is, just that will think its in Neutral, or rather set the MLPS to N.
I am not 100% on computer as I went to stand alone mustang based EFI on my 92 when I went to the C6.

Do not miss the e4od at all really...

Was speed control, if equipped, recall work completed? Check @ Recalls Look-up by VIN (Vehicle Identification Number); or @ Welcome to Ford Owner | Official Ford Owner Site; or ... have VIN ready. While there, see most Ford dealer maintenance/repairs done @ any dealership nation-wide.
"Summary: ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS, PASSENGER VEHICLES, SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, AND MOTOR HOMES CHASSIS, THE SPEED CONTROL DEACTIVATION SWITCH MAY, UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS, LEAK INTERNALLY AND THEN OVERHEAT, SMOKE, OR BURN. THIS COULD RESULT IN AN UNDERHOOD FIRE."
See this guide by jowens1126 to confirm recall status @ 93 & 94-96 Cruise Control Recalls Repair
Note that the 93 recall is different than 94-96.

85 and 86 EFI 5.0 engines were kinda funky when it comes to the eec and signals it wants. Hopefully the truck is an 87-89. Its eec is what you'll want to use.

You'll need to use the donor front and rear drive shafts. Crossmember im not too sure about since the c6 is the father of the e4od.

Honestly you're better off getting another E4OD. I knew someone who had a c6 in his "trail" 93 and he was always backing out of things because it was so miserable to drive over 45 mph. and seriously, OD kicks in around 45-50, and the engine screams without it.

Will need the cross-member from the c6 truck. The holes will be in the frame. At least the holes where in my 92. The c6 and e4od crossmember are not the same.
The transfer case shifter will be different, but should work in the newer truck. Do not loose the one of the older one though. It mounts to the trans/tcase differently.

-Miserable to drive? I must have different setup... I run mine down the highway at 75 @ 3k rpm. No big deal. I geared it accordingly though 33" with 4.10 gears.

At 3k every vehicle I own is pushing at least 85+.

Yeah I get it... just saying not sure what the big deal is about a in good health small block Ford, turning some rpm going down the road. Guess it comes down to preference, for me its no big deal; I certainly would not say miserable.
Though agree likely not ideal setup for daily driver, when E4OD is plug and play especially.
