Computer for 1988 ford

Hi ,
I just bought a truck and the guy before me switched the motor from a 302 to a 351w, and never changed the computer in it. How do i find out what computer to get bc there is like 8 different kinds and also the truck shots gas out the exhaust, what would make this happen?

    Just a suggestion...unless you are really good at this stuff you will wind up spending a lot of money making this right. Likely cheaper to get a 302 and put it in. Or better yet...sell it for whatever you can get!!!

You need to check out some ford forums and you need to get a computer off a truck that ran the 351 with the same tranny that you are using and you will also need the wiring harness

I have an 01 focus and it has a terrible vibration and a few guys told me it prob is the top mount on the passengers side... Has anyonr heard of this prob?

I have 6 ford focus's and I have changed 3 motor mounts so far, 2, 2005's I bought directly from ford fixed the was like a new car. The other one a 2003 model I bought from Autozone, it still vibrates allthough it is 98% better. I will always buy the motor mounts directly from Ford.
