Swap all your sensors and fuel rail/injectors on to the new engine.

a flex fuel computer NEEDS TO SEE the signal from the flex fuel module in the fuel system. or at least it does on the earlier models such as around 2000 that have the alcohol content sensor in the fuel lines.

so if your truck has the FF sensor, don't use a gas pcm. plus if you have PATS you're kinda stuck with your pcm.
