so heres the deal, i picked up a 351 complete with everything from a 1990 bronco. The harness and everything is in great condition. im wanting to swap this into my 1996 f150 to replace the current i-6 and obdII crap. anyhow, the computer harness will work because i am picking up a ford racing mass air conversion kit. So heres my question, the harness's from the two trucks are different, one with the round harness plug and mine with the squarish harness plug. if im being unclear its the plug that goes from all the under dash wires to the engine compartment. how can i make this work? Cut and splice the harnesses together? are the wires the same? anyone with suggestions, help would be greatly appreciated. thanks guys i'll take some pics and post them up later to show exactly what im talking about.

I did a mass air swap V-8 on my 91 I-6, but i used a mustang harness and had to splice 8 wires from the engine harness to the round plug chassis harness , fuel pump monitor , key on , 12v, start , and mygauge wires, i would get wire diagrams for both trucks and start traceing before i cut anything if i saw some pics i could tell you more
