    Default 98 cobra, ecu, 97 ecu-to-engine harness?

    So i bought a 98 Cobra Engine to start my MOD FOX project in my 82 Coupe. It came with the Engine Harness already on it. However it didn't come with an ECU Harness or an ECU.

    I found a few 98 AOL3 ECU's fairly cheap.. but can't find a 98 "ECU to ENGINE HARNESS" harness. I have found a 97 harness and was told its the same as 96-98. but i know 98 ECU's are different from 96-97. so i wanted to check before i bought it.

    i think the part numbers are:
    97: F7ZB 12A581 N160S
    98: F8ZB 12A581 N160S

    Can anyone verify if 97 and 98 are the same? differences? whats interchangeable?

    Contact your local Ford dealer and see if they are compatible.
    The numbers you show are engineering numbers.
    The only way to tell for sure is to go over the wiring diagrams of both cars
    and make sure that the PCM pins do the same thing,
    pin by pin.
    You may have some connectors that are different on the engine.
