96 v6 swap engine from 99 v6

I have a 96 v6 5 speed mustang with a blown motor i have found a 99 v6 auto mustang with a bad tranny. I would prefer to use the 99 but i have a lot of concerns with that i have been told by friend it would just be easier to put the engine in the 96. What all would i need to change in order to put the 96 5 speed tranny in the 99? Would I have to change the computer and would that work I'm sure i am missing a lot of things here but any help would be much appreciated.

While you're in there would you consider a gt motor/tranny?

I think you would need the ecu, might need to switch over the fuel system too. I think the ECU assists with shifts in an auto, but since it's a 5sp. You might beable to just throw it in there. Might get a check engine light because of the auto ecu, but I don't see anything that would stop it from running.
I'm hoping someone with experience on this swap will chime in.
but as long as you have both cars, that should be all the parts you need.

It's a whole bother monster you're dealing with here. Since you have the car down already I'm guessing you have another car to get around in? Because to do this swap you'll need the entire wiring harness, fuel tank, pump, fuel lines, misc stuff like the actual locks and inner handles, gauge cluster and some other things I'm forgetting. I've been doing this swap for months now but that's because I wasn't prepared. I'm swapping and 02 engine into a 97. If you don't want any hassle, It would be easier to find the single port engine and just mount it on your car already.

you can avoid a lot of hassle by buying a windstar fuel rail, it uses the split port setup, with the return style system. Then you don't need the fuel tank, pump and fuel lines. I hope your not too deep into the car, cause you could just buy the windstar fuel rail and from what i've read it will make it a lot easier.

and he's actually thinking about using the '99, so he might not have to swap so much.

The fastest way I can see you getting one these cars on the rode would be too just swap the newer engine in your car, BUT take the heads and intake off of the newer engine and just use your older heads and intake.

The single port split port swap. It will need a tune to work. I can send you to a place that can teach you more. The 96 wiring harness will work. There is a lot that goes into the swap. I recommend studying what other people have done before posting on the sight. Some people get tired of teaching old information. I personally do not have the time to study the swap because much goes into it. Once you learn from outer peoples mistakes the swap gets easier.


You will need to either get a modified fuel rail or convert your car which from the factory has a return-style to returnless fuel system(will require a chip/ecu flash along with fuel system modifications)which is PITA. So the fuel rail mod will be the way to go. Only other thing is if you're using the '99 engine you have to splice some wiring and need a 99 wiring harness so be prepared.
