Change the pedal asy 4 bolts take the shifter out and insert shifter boot plastic, clutch cable. One pop out piece of metal on fire wall, trans brace, drive shaft knuckle, tranny harness . Clutch and flywheel and tranny. Done.

If you buy a rebuilt tranny on eBay that's in good condition and say its for a swap and it comes from a legit shop they usually tell you what's needed and basic instillation directions.

How much is cheap and how many miles are on it also if its rebuilt or if he says it is check for res or corrostion around every seal. Make sure you know what your buying before it turns into a head ache. Just looking out for your satisfaction. Also what trans is it? Tremich?

Has long as it came from a Gt. It's the same car. Bolts should line up during the conversion

If yours is a 4.6 and the trans is from a 4.6 and not from the 5.0 (94 and 95)

Don't forget about checking driveshaft geometry to the rear-end. I've been in a 5.0 swapped 4 cylinder fox and the didn't check the geometry and he broke the driveshaft while cruising.
