I had my 1999 mustang's V6 swapped out for 2002 gt 4.6 V8 (with tr3650 tranny, cross member, front suspension, front brakes, ecu, speedometer, ) and it cost a little under 4000$. The swap came out of a 2002 with 52000 Kms or about 30 xxx miles. It was worth it for me at the time and it was fun. The only thing I was missing at that point was the differential, which I got a few months after for about 200$. It's usually cheaper to sell and buy, but if you are mechanically savvy, there's no reason you can't tackle this yourself. As long as you just swap whatever usually came on the gt. It gets a bit more complicated when you swap a different engine, but not impossible by any measure.
