Swapping modern V6 5 speed into 67-70?

OK so this isn't the standard idea but I am looking for a modern drivetrain to put into a classic 'Stang for my daughter graduating from college. I want better mileage than maybe the 5.o would give me and she likes the stick. Can anyone give me ideas or key issues I will have? Will it fit and other than the wiring/computer fun what other hurdles will I have?
Thanks for any input.

the main issues on using a T-5 from a 99+ v6 is the speedo gear was removed and replaced with a digial readout. You will need the tail shaft from a pre 99 T-5 to convert it over~ and you will have to put a gear on the output shaft~

This may give you a idea Modern Driveline - Classic Mustang Transmission Swaps - T5 conversions or TREMEC. 1965-1973 swaps,

we have done a couple of latemodel drivetrains into the classic ponies. Depending on how involved you want to get with it and what your ultimate goal is. 05 or newer v6 mustang drivetrain would be very fun and more powerful then the standard v8 originally in the classic pony.You can find these on the internet fairly reasonable. If you are wanting something a little less involved and for a few less dollars, look into buying a donor v6 mustang from the sn95 era.You will still have a pretty fun car with decent mileage.

On a side note,you can build a 5.0 car that will get 20 to 23 mpg with a carb. and still maintain great reliability.One of our first project cars was a carbed 91 roller motor that averaged 21 mpg with a t5 and 327 gears.

i agree with benjy, the s197 v6 cars make impressive power and you still have the drivability and tuneability of a brand new car.

Re: Swapping modern V6 5 speed into 67-70?

Thanks for the info. So I am guessing the engine will fit between the shock towers. How difficult is it to get the computer wired up? I understand the later T5's have electronic pickups and I will need to convert to mechanical. I am looking at getting a donor car rather than just the engine/trans- are there other parts I would want to transplant? Rear end, seats ect? Also which year or years have the easiest swapping for disc brakes and power steering?
Thanks for your interest! My only previous work on a Mustang was a bone stock 64 1/2 so don't know all the ins and outs.
