90 lx with 88 gt dropout, which harness?

i have a 1990 lx 5.0 (frozen and missing trans)

I bought a complete 1988 gt drop out with engine, ecu,maf harness and ecu jumper convertor, headlights harness's

should I change the 90 harness out with the gt harness's, or should I just change the engine harness on the 88 motor with the 90 lx engine harness?

I am thinking just change the engine harness on the 88 to the 90 harness since both use the maf. Correct me if I am wrong?!?!?!?!?!?!

Unless your 88 is a California car it shouldn't be mass air. I wouldn't change the harness myself. Just put the motor in and plug into the OE harness in the car.

The drop out came with the plug in to use a newer ecm and changes the SD to MAF

I would try the 88 harness first,if there were any issues with the harness than you could easily swap them out

i would keep whatever the car came with, just swap the motor in and keep the original wiring for the car... your asking for trouble if you dont.

replaced the 93'ish coupe with a 64 falcon hardtop, 393, 11.5:1, TEA CNC 205 TW's, custom Hyd Roller, Super Vic, 830 HP, C4.

just a side note, you can seperate and sell the MAF conversion to someone who needs it, and the density harness would be perfect for someone who wants to convert a carb'd car to megasquirt! and your keeping your cars wiring intact, instead of bastardizing it.

Thank you for the replys, I figured I would just swap the 90 harness onto the 88 motor and sell the other harness and the maf conversion.
