If it's a 318, it would have the TBI Single Board Engine Controller or SBEC behind the battery in the driver side fender.  If it is a 360, it will be carbureted and will not have a computer.

I have owned a lot of cars and trucks in the years since I got my license. have yet to buy anything besides a Dodge or a Jeep.  The 88 D100 short bed was w/o a doubt THE biggest POS that I have had over the years, hands down.
8MPG, only ever got 12MPG once from that POS. 70 MPH with a 40MPH tailwind down the highway.  even my 79 RC with full time 4wd that had a reputation for that, I got 14 out of.....  replaced EVERYTHING at least twice related to that TBI and nothing changed. Overhauled the engine too, 100% completely stock except for a 30-thou overbore. had more problems with that blasted TBI than anything else, forced me to dump the truck and lose my a$$, this was back around 1996. never could get that thing to run right. and that was with a couple of dealer buddy's assistance.

the best TBI vehicle I ever owned, was my 90 Dakota w/a 3.9.  very few issues with that one.
my son has a couple of TBI's, a 90 W250 and an 89 RC, the 90 has been "not too bad" but not without its TBI issues/  the 89 RC is getting converted to a 4 bbl carb..... but those are his not mine.
going to the Magnum was the best thing they could ever do,  to get away from the TBI setup.

I've had mine 12 years and I've replaced one injector and the AIS motor.
