Engine swap!?!?

I have an opportunity to pick up a 1997 lincoln mark viii engine (v) to swap in my 1996 mustang gt! Will this engine bolt right up? Any things I should know regarding this swap? Thanks for the advice

I did this swap. The 97 isn't to bad. Pretty much bolt right up. I screwed up and got a 93. So i had to upgrade the intake and a lot of other parts to be like the 97-98. But it definatly change your car! I love it.

There are a bazillion write ups on this swap. I'd say do it, but before you dive into it do some Google searches on the topic and read as much as you can. There is alot of little things that need to be done to make it work, but it's very possible and pretty straight forward. And FWIW I'm doing a similar one, using the engine from an Aviator, into my 2000. But I started a thread for that.
