1999 3.8 to 5.0 swap

So I found a rather cheap 5.0 engine and I'm looking into swapping it into my 99 v6. What all will I need? I heard a few people say the v6 transmission will bolt up to the 5.0 with a new bell housing, and the rear end would hold up. Right now I'm just looking to get the stock 5.0 motor in there, and then upgrade everything else later

I don't know what tranny the 99 v6 has got or if the 95 k member fits but by the time you get the motor in there you will probably be more then what it would cost to buy a clean sn95 (1994 to 1995) or a fox

The 99 has a T5 if I'm not mistaken, can a k member be pulled from a fox body or a 94-96 gt?

Well a 96 is a 4.6l so no but that's what I was saying I don't know if a 94 to 95 one will fit I know the fox body k member won't fit there maybe a company that makes a tubular k member that fits a 5.0 in it and if your v6 has a t5 it may work i would look up the specs on the tranny and rear end to see if they changed anything in the t5 for the v6 and what size the rear end is if its a 8.8 you'd be fine

Gotcha, I'm thinking the v6 rear end is a 7.5 not sure but I'm gonna look more into it. How much do you think it would cost just to get the motor In and running?

If its a 7.5 then I would switch it with a 8.8 I have seen 7.5s work with 5.0 but I have seen them fail at the strip to as for how much it would cost I have no idea is it going to be carb or fuel injection ?

I don't plan on racing it, and I'm thinking fuel injected but I heard carbed would be way cheaper

Ye it would be a lot easyer then making up a wiring harness I still say the cheapest way to get a 5.0 in it is sell it and get a sn95

The cost will probably decide whether I go carbed or not lol if it's not really much of a difference I'll go fuel injected

It probably would be cheaper to just buy a GT but It's gonna be a father son project so it'd mean a lot more to us to build one together...

I saw a 99 5.0 on Craigslist during the summer. They showed no hood pics or explained any work done. I would dump the 7.5 rear and go with a 8.8 possibly with 4.10 gears. The choice is yours.
Here is hopefully everything you need to know for the swap ............http://www.mustang50magazine.com/how...8_engine_swap/

a carb'd 5.0 definitely is the cheapest way to go for a V8 swap, Ford used them in everything. I got one for free from a totaled truck. It's just sitting in my garage though, I'm thinking i'd rather try and find a small european 2 seater to throw it in. That would be a fun car to drive.
