I guess you could, but it won't be easy. I'm sure the transmission won't mate up without an adapter plate. You'll have to build a whole new engine mounting system. And you'll have to bring most of the wiring along with the ECM from the 1998 Chevy engine to make it run in the Ford. You'll have no gauges that work, because the Chevy gauges get their inputs from the ECM and your Ford gauges will have nothing to provide information.

Sounds to me like you opened a can of worms that you are not equipped/qualified to deal with. To begin with, doing an engine change the way you did it is illegal. It is OK to put the newer motor in the older vehicle, but it is against federal law to put the older engine into the newer vehicle. REFERENCE: EPA ENGINE SWAP FACT SHEET

With all that said, if you want to do a swap like that, it is necessary to also swap wiring harnesses and computer modules (among several other components) if you expect it to work.
