2001 v6 to v8

I have always been a Chevy man but I recently aquired a 96 gt and since then I've gotten completely addicted to mustangs. Between my dad and I we've owned 6 in the past 6 months. This past week I've bought an 01 v6 5 speed in really great shape for next to nothing. The 99-04 is my favorite body style and I have intentions of swapping out the 3.8 for a 4.6 that has been made into a 5.0 stroker. What are some things I will end up having to change/do to make this work? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Pretty straight forward swap being that same production vehicle with both motors. You need the ecm and engine wiring harness for the gt. The rest of the car harness works with the gt computer. You need the ccrm, gt fan setup, obviously exhaust system, 8.8 rear end to handle the extra power, ect. There are several write ups on the net
