Have a 1992 EB with 6 cylinder engine. Also had a boss v8 from a BA (Now have a 5l from a 95 fairmont) following on from my earlier thread about weither the boss engine would fit i have come to the following decision (coppied and pasted from my other thread) im hopeing some of you here can tell me if there is anything i have overlooked.

Ok so after a lot of thinking decided the boss v8 was probably going to be a much bigger project than i was really prepared for for this car. Managed to swap it with a friend for a 5L v8 (not sure if it is a clevland or windsor yet guess i will find out when it is dropped off) out of a 1995 fairmont. This one comes complete with engine, 4 speed auto, all the wiring from under the bonnet, and the computer as well as a nice set of stainless extractors and the radiator and fans from the donor car too. Learned from other threads i have looked at on here that i also need the k member from a v8 eb (which i think i have ordered from a local dismantler, have a new dif on the way and driveshaft. and have also ordered a smartlock bypass to get around the fact my eb was not fitted with smartlock. what i am not sure of is are there any other electronic bits inside the car other than the main computer and the wiring loom going from it to the engine that i will need to complete this conversion. For example does the transmission require any electronic boxes or wiring looms from the donor car to work in my EB? is there anything else im forgetting? any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
