1995 5.0 swap

This week I plan to take out my v6 engine, and the transmission. And then find a 5.0 and getting the Aod transmission computers and wire harnesses. I'm taking my time bc I work at a machine shop where ill be doing my swap.

So questions:
•does the 00 stock k member of my v6 fit up to the 95 5.0?
•does the AOD Fit directly where my v6 trany was?
•what's a good price I can sell my 4r70w transmission which is only 30,000 miles on it 2 years old? And v6 engine?

why not just skip the 5.0 and go with a 351w/5.8L swap? it uses most of the same parts a the 5.0 swap.

I like the 5.0. It's all I know. And I want something that'll bolt right up a simple swap and I can have an automatic.

I believe that the 351/5.8 uses almost all of the same parts as the 5.0 HO.
It would be just like dropping a 5.0 in your mustang. it would use the same transmission,engine mounts and It can also use the 5.0's wiring harness and computers.
I think the best bang for your buck would be a 393 though. Its a 351 with the crankshaft and connecting rods out a a 5.0/302.
or if you want more they make a 427 stroker kit for the 351.
the 351 also has more cams to choose from(atleast it does on the compcams website) . If i had one, I'd probably get one of the thumpr roller cams.

and one of the more popular sayings is "there is no replacement for displacement"

Ok what are you saying here that I could use my 2000 v6 transmission or you talking about the 5.0?

Ive always been a 4.6 fan, because it has better performance than the 5.0, the 4v 4.6 that is. Stroke the 4.6 to a 5.3 with a c4 and high stall torque converter and call it a day. But, you'll need the wiring harness, id advise a tubular k member and a arms, then upgraded fuel pump and lines to handle the extra gas need. You will have one VERY bad street car

the 351 could use your V6's transmission, I recommend getting a tougher transmission though, one that was meant for a V8.
If I was going to do it i'd just buy a good used 351 block and put a 302 crank in it, some good flowing heads and intake, headers, probably a thumpr cam. should make a pretty nice street rod.

Well I've just looked and googled some info and found out I could find a Mach 1 engine and put it on my transmission is this true bc I do remember seeing a Mach 1 with an automatic. That would be an awesome swap too, except I can't go d any around here. But one on Craigslist. I know I'd have to use an adaptor plate if I go that route and plus that swap would benefit me bc I have the 4.6 rebuild book from barns and noble

However I decided to 5.0 swap. I read all kinds of information and hear all different stuff. But what I need to know is if my k member will work, if my rear end can hold for a while at least enough to get to a shop to change the rear end to an8.8 the shop is a block away.

Is it hard to swap a automatic transmission to a standard?

It's kinda hard just because of all the parts you'll need to install. Plus you need to know the exact order to put things in so that they all work properly. Id just find a donor gt to get the engine, wiring harness, k member, trans, clutch quadrant, clutch petal, shifter, driveshaft, rearend, and fuel pump out of so you have everything infront of you.

Would a 94-98 rear end work?

What would be a better swap 5.0 or the 4.6 4v Mach 1?

4.6 4v mach 1, definitely a better engine. I'm not sure about the 98 rear working in your car because I've never worked on the 2000-2004 mustangs. I'm sure someone will chime in with more info..

Yeah man, that would be a great idea. It will be a money pit, but you will have the baddest car on the block. Would you want to do a power adder like a turbo or supercharger, or just go straight engine?

I can respect a straight motor more than a turbo or supercharged one. But this chevy guy can stick with his 350s lol the 4.6 4v has 260hp stock. With an exhaust, cai, tune, and 4.10 rear gears you'd have a low 13 second car and that's just a standard 4.6 4v not the mach 1 build you wanna do.

Summit, there's a 5.0 in there fully dressed for 3600. Has 360hp stock. I'm more into the junkyard builds because they're less costly and you built them yourself instead of getting the whole thing in a box. But, if you have the $$$ do it up man, its a turn key engine delivered to your door step lol
