So this is my first post, please be patient....

In 2019 my 1964 International Harvester C900 P.U. was nominated for custom car of the year in MN. I realize that isn't the part that may interest all of you mustang fanatics. The power plant for this rig is a built '93 5.0, T5 trans and a 8.8" rear complete with MII front suspension. This thing is close enough to being a mustang, I modeled it after the SVT lightning and figured if IH were to have built one it would have looked like mine. If someone can give me instructions on how to post pics, and there is interest, I'll post a couple.

Anyway, as the question states, I need the computer pinout for a 1997 v6 mustang. The reason is I'm building a tame 1948 Dodge passenger car for my wife and found an awesome donor for a heck of a deal. My intent with this build is to have a car with all of the modern amenities while also agitating every classic Dodge owner on the planet. Anyone have this by chance?

In My Honest Opinion (IMHO) you need to forget about the OEM harness and ECU. Any amount of money you spend on this harness and ECU could be put into a "buy once" solution like a MegaSquirt.

This also saves you the ass-pain of trying to integrate this Ford ECU with your Dodge cluster etc. I don't even want to think about the theft features wrapped into the OEM Ford ECU for 97.

@a91what should be able to help to figure out what unit(s) would be suitable.

depends on what he wants to be able to do.... just want the engine to run?? microsquirt.

want to be able to see every sensor possible on the engine and do cool stuff like traction control ect.. ms3x

I agree that the 97 ecu will be difficult to deal with, if you get it working you will need to at a minimum get hp tuners or equivalent to shut off most of the codes and emissions stuff

Here is the mustang that is the donor for the 1948 Dodge project. It actually ran, and ran well actually when this picture was taken:

Here is the car that the driveline is going in:

The frame is currently getting a MII suspension upgrade and a 8.8" dif from a 95 GT.
I will certainly look into the optional PC that you mentioned. I was successful in harvesting the 93 factory engine harness for the IH truck above, I've successfully installed a thunderbird 5.0 into a 97 GT mustang (for a friend who's lost his mind) so I'm not too scared of the wiring challenge. I will be using aftermarket gauges that will pickup the oil pressure, water temp, fuel & speedo inputs.

Does anyone have the computer pinout for the 97 v6? Still evaluating options but would love to see it.
