The only thing I have seen close is the one on its for swapping in a 5.0, so its going to be a bit different, but it will give you the general idea of what would be necessary. Its a big job and doing it with a donor car and doing most of the work yourself would be the only way to do it without spending a total fortune on parts and labor! If you have a mechanically inclined friend that is willing to lend a hand that will help as well. Get ahold of as many Manuals pertaining to your car and the GT as you can find, these will also be valuable. Might be easier to take body parts from your car and fix the wrecked GT!
