A '72 with a V6? What's that doing in there?
What you want to do isn't too difficult wiring wise though. Just use the EEC main harness and engine harness and strip out any extras like ABS etc. You could retain smartlock if you wanted to?
having said all that, they are a lard asre car so a minum of a 351w should be considered and you could run that with the same EL EECV.

That's why I said "what that doing in there?" They didn't come with V6's That happened in '74 with the poxy Mustang II.
