Without knowing much about the swap itself, i would assume that you would need the computer out of any manual first gen with the same engine as yours. Don't think that you'd need to match it to a '92 or '94.

I havent had any issues with my X since the swap and I didnt take the computer out and swap it. The swap is also pretty straight forward, iirc you have almost everything you need. The hardest part for me was getting it to start afterwards... Have to bypass the neutral safety switch in the wire harness that used to goto the auto (the 5 pin I think). To do so just splice 2 wires together, although I cant quite remember which ones. pink/blue stripe is one, not sure what the other is..

To go from manual to auto? In that case you might need the auto computer for your manual truck. And then well, the usual stuff; auto tranny, column shifter, gauge cluster, the auto brake pedal, kick down cable.. theres a few things. /shrug
