Default 3.0 to 4.0 Swap

Okay, so i bought a 1995 Ranger 4x4 5 speed 3.0L. not a fan of 3.0 have always loved the 4.0. The price was right so i got it from a family friend for $1500. The 3.0 has 40,000 on rebuild and runs super good. Now i have a 4.0 out of an explorer. with the 5 speed. i am planning on swapping the 3.0 for the 4.0 soon. Now i believe that the motor mounts are the same, and the Tranny mounts are the same, and the exhaust should bolt right up to. but what i am wondering is that i think i need to swap the computer and wiring harness. Has anyone done this swap before who can help me? i want to know if the computer is in the same place as on the 3.0 which is on the firewall. and if i can just use the 3.0 computer and wiring harness? I highly doubt it but it doesnt hurt to wish.. lol can anyone help? Thanks
