39 and a z28

I am building a 39 Master Deluxe and bought a wrecked 95 z28 for the lt1 and t-56. The wiring harness in the Z is perfect. Am I kidding myself in thinking I can transplant it to the 39?

Thanks for the encouragement, it helps. What about the sensors I don't want or need I.E. the ABS stuff. Can I simply cut and cap those wires with no adverse effect?

sensors

u were talking about the engine... that includes O2 sensors, MAP and the other one's for the engine... if your doing a front end swap and it came with ABS u dont need them if u don't want them.. but a computer controled engine will need the sensors or an elimation kit..

As they have said you can do it, I have seen many articles on harness mods, ( deleting what you don`t want or need)...

shop manual

You may find that having good knowledge of the donor car electronic system will be helpful when you are installing and starting to use the system.
A shop manual or ALLDATAdiy.com Leading Source of Factory Automotive Repair Information will save you so much time and headache.
