1996 F150 ECM replacement

Hello All,
I have been reading the posts about PO135 PO141 PO155 and have followed the same things other guys have described. Replaced the O2 sensors and still trouble codes. I have ordered an ECM from Advance Auto Parts. The only info they needed from the truck was the calibration code. Do I just install the new one? Are there any other steps to it?
Thanks,
Scott

Plug in and start up let ecm get to know motor . Good luck on new ecm . I don't
know if calibration code is different for the 96 Or just engine specific . You have the OBDII and it has extra wires ETC . Advanced screwed a friend of mine that way .

Go to www.fordinjection.com it will give what may be problems and how to test everything . May save cost of a ecm/pcu
Good luck

My engine is the 5.0 I ordered the computer using the calibration code from the sticker in the door.

No problem. I am just glad that pesky little light is out. I've been thinking of a rear disc brake conversion. My truck has 3/4 ton axles and 13inches of lift. Also I believe I have a bad front bearing in my transfer. It makes noise from that area when locked in and running.
