Thumbs up 2000 V6 to 1979 351w swap

I am swapping my V6 with a 351w. I have a 2000 V6 SN95 body type with the T5 transmission.
1. will I need to swap the K member to the V8 SN95 or foxbody K member? or will the one I have work?
2. which flywheel will I need to use? the one that was on the 351 or from the 3.8?

I am getting varying answers from searching around so I figured I would go right to the source. I appreciate any clarifications on these issues, and thanks in advance.

If I remember correctly the v6 k member will work , you will definitely have to use the 351 flywheel though.

Think you need a K-member if your 6 is 99-04.

This will be a cool swap. You should start a swap thread once you get started.

Re: 2000 V6 to 1979 351w swap

Nice, I really like the sound of flowmaster exhaust. I've heard that this swap will get around 400 are the flywheel. Do you know if the bellhousing from the 3.8 will mount to the 351?

I seen where there might be an issue with the length of the input shaft.

Only an issue if you use a T5 from a 93 and older.
Could also be an issue using a V6 T5, which I would strongly discourage anyway as it won't last long at all. There are DS spacers for using other transmissions. You'd be wise to contact D&D performance.

I have been looking through Delk performance, I'll take a look at D&D. Thanks.
