Does a 97 cobra motor fit into a 92 crown victoria?

I wrecked my 97 cobra, wanted to see if the motor would fit into a 92" Crown Victoria, without having to modify motor mounts, I understand I may have to cut a hole on the floor to make room for the shifter, being that the mustang is standard. Not to sure on the drive shaft either

Yeah it should bolt right up. My brother did this swap into a grand marquis. Lets just say it was a nasty old man's car.

Before you do anything else with that '92, check the condition of the frame just behind the lower control arm rear mounting points. This is where the frame transitions from the engine/suspension areas into the straight section down the sides. This joint has no drainage and traps dirt and moisture which rusts it though. The problem is worse on the passenger's side, where drainage from the A/C evaportor case collects. This is a critical problem as these cars age snd it's impractical to attempt repair. If it's rusted through, junk the car.

The engine should fit with no real issues but the electronics are different, wiring harness will be different and converting an automatic Crown Vic to manual shift will be a MAJOR undertaking.
Just buy a Mustang with a blown engine and save yourself a lot of grief.
