looking for some help/input

I have a 93 coupe 4 cylinder automatic that i would like to 302 swap. I found a mostly complete V8 hatch with a 5 speed manual. The hatch back was missing the radiator, the fan, the distributor and the air intake. I found it at a junk yard and was just excited to buy it never thinking to ask the year. Once i got it home i ran the vin and find out its a 88 GT. I searched around and saw that for the 88 gt's are still speed density. Is this true?? is it going to effect my swap greatly?? I know i will need to get the wiring from a 93 GT manual car, will this solve the mass air situation??

appreciate the help

You'll want a 93 engine harness anyway.

As far as the mechanicals go, being an 88 doesn't hurt anything. You can put the 93 ECU and wiring on a 88 engine and it will run perfectly fine.

That's kind of what i was thinking, Once i get the 93 gt harness i can just add the missing mass air pieces
