Default Need ECU Help



hey guys, i need some help here. a buddy of mine dropped a 5.0L into a Volvo wagon and we need an ECU for it (auto, btw). we know that a 91 ecu will work but there has to be other years that work as well we just dont know what they are. if it helps any it runs a mass air flow sensor and has an O2 sensor, the place that sold him the swap hosed him over big time. he was supposed to get a 5.0 HO swap complete. instead he got a 5.0L with the HO intake, a wiring harness for a 91 and a computer that doesnt read either the MAF or the O2 sensors cause its the wrong one. im hoping that you can help us out. educate me a bit please. im into VW's so i dont know ford stuff too well. also if anyone has something for sale that will work please let me know.</P>


thanks for your time,</P>

ok further questions. my friend has told me that in 91 they changed some of the pins around on the ecu. is this true, if so does this mean that a 91 or newer ecu is needed.
