Question 1999 Base Coupe 3.8 -> To 5.0L V8

I bought a 1999 body which was swapped to a 5.0L V8 I hade the original A9L computer which of course came with the V8 that was pulled from a 1992 Fox Body. I "accidentally" through away the original A9L ECU and now I'm shopping around and researching for alternate PCMs or engine control modules that would work, and by work I mean won't cause problems even if it's at the expense of power.

2. I'd also like to ask how would I go about adding and aftermarket set of gauges that work? Speedometer etc etc I want to totally switch out the instrument cluster.

I'm also not concerned about emissions as bad as that sounds.

I think so, I'd assume so..I know this sounds bad..but I purchased the vehicle "as-is" luckily I asked the few questions that I did. And thanks so much for the response Camster!
