Lincoln MKVII 5.0 HO - questions

Hi guys!
I've recently acquired a donor engine/trans from an '89 Lincoln MkVII, which I would like to use for a hot rod application, in a '56, 1/2 ton P/U truck. Somewhere, I read that the 5.0 HO's installed in the Lincolns are somewhat different from those installed in the Mustangs/T-birds/Cougars, of similar vintage. Is this correct? If so, are the differences limited to the intake or heads or something along those lines?

I will also be taking the ECU and complete engine wiring harness from this car, and I'm hoping this will simplify the transition from the car to the truck. Am I making an incorrect assumption here?

Any comments or suggestions are welcome and I thank all for the valuable input.

Happy Holidays to all of you!

Norton... Use the lincoln motor and use mustang mass air wiring and ecm. do not waste your time with pulling the lincoln wiring and puter. You can use the injector harness from the Lsc. My chero is running a 89 LSC motor in it.
