engine swap from v6 to 306

sup guys. i got a few dollars on me and i want to get a new and improved powerful engine for my 2005 v6 stang. i was wondering if i swap my v6 engine with a 306 crate engine. would i have to get another transmission? i sure hope i wouldnt have to get a rear end or something. im not a mechanic so hoping someone could help me out with this. and if i would have to get a new tranny. could i get the tci tranny or what? need help. highly appreciate it. thanks guys.

Re: engine swap from v6 to 306

if it's a stick u may have to change bellhousing..dont quote me on that. if you go auto, i would suggest a racing aod. you will get consistant shifts as well as cut down on the electronics needed to run an electric unit. as far as the rear end, you do wutever u want or just leave it alone, but chances are you will wanna upgrade to a higher gear ratio. also, u dint say if you were goin carb or efi with the 306.

last but not least, not to deter you. but your talkn bout a pretty finacialy intensive project if your not doin the work yourself. you mentioned you werent a mechanic. it may be cheaper for you to purchase a factory v8 car. the project you wanna do isnt rocket science, but v-6 to v8 swaps are far from novice level ...especialy if you plan to go fuel injection. however, if your adventurous and have aome spare time, knowledgable friends, and sum patience....but all means jump on it. you will learn tons by the time it's up and running.
