Post 5.0 Engine Swap into Turbo Coupe

Hey all. I am just trying to get a little information about a project I am considering. Basically, if all goes well, I will shortly have an 88 TC- less motor and tranny. I currently have a 83 Cougar that I have been building on for the last year or so. The Cougar has a completely new Drivetrain fresh with a GT40 EFI 302 CID V8. I am considering abandoning my Cougar Project and Installing its drivetrain into the TC. Now, the barrage of questions.......
Since we are utilizing EFI- (mine is still the old TBI type- but is new and has been slightly modified.) What type of wiring changes am I going to be in for, should I do this swap? I have consulted a few resources, and the wiring daigrams for the 2.3L and 5.0 Cars look almost identical. Will this be only a matter of swapping the ECU? I have done several engine swaps, but would like some basic info first with this case. Any help or advice would be appreciated. If anyone has done this before, I would really like your input on this matter.

Thanks!

-BR
