Cool 87 F-150 understand can use newer ecu

Met someone that used to bracket race 5.0s. The guy said something about being able to use the computer out of a newer vehicle. I know a newer f-150 the wirring to the plug for the computer is different. So I allready know I would have to rewire the plug. So I do not think it would matter If I used a computer from a mustang. In fact, I feel it could be a benefit if it is more responsive, and more tuneable. If any one has done this let me know how it worked for you please. This 5.0 has shown me it has potential for a lot more than It gives!
