Turbo Coupe V-8 conversion questions

I am converting my 87 Turbo Coupe to a 351. The 4 cyl is no longer practical for me. These cars have a massive underhood wiring harnass. Can anybody tell me what I can delete? I want to keep the adjustable shocks, antilock brakes, and A/C of course. All of the mechanical is done. If anybody has done this conversion I sure could use some advise. Thanks!

You may want to drop a PM to LX-Tasy. He seems to know this model pretty well.

I did this in my turbo coupe about 6 months ago and it was very simple. Underhood you will have to remove all the 4 cyl engine harness, you goin injected or carb? If injected you will also have to get the computer out of a 5.0 for mass air and convert the car over to mass air as well. I put a 331 stroker in mine and i love it.
