Question Advice? 94 and 00 Mustang, with 99GT parts..

I own a 2000 Mustang v6, auto. The motor threw a rod and put a hole in the block. I then had the idea of putting a v8 with a 5spd trans. I went out and bought a 5spd trans, computer, 8.8 rear end, and driveshaft from a 1999 GT.
However, I ran out of money after all of this. This means, I haven't been able to find an engine yet..

My mother owns a 1994 Mustang v6, auto. The transmission in which just went out recently. I have the opportunity to buy this.

So, I have reached a point where I would really like some expert advice from fellow Mustang fanatics.

I've thought about problems that the 2000 might encounter..such as, passing inspection. My area does test for emissions, and, wouldn't there be problems with a swapped motor and emissions testing? But, if I were to do the swap into the 1994 Mustang, in three years it would be considered a classic meaning it wouldn't have to pass inspection..right?

I'm just trying to figure out the best way to go about this, because I love both cars and would like to have both cars running and driving. Would it be easier to do the swap into the 94, then find a used motor for the 2000?

There are no problems with the 2000 other than the engine, and there are no problems with the 1994 other than the transmission, but the working motor/transmission will not work together as far as I know.

Basic rundown is this:
I have a 1994 Mustang with a v6 and a non-working transmission.
I have a 2000 Mustang with a perfect transmission but no engine.
I have a 5speed transmission, computer, 8.8 rear end, and driveshaft from a 1999 GT.

In your opinion, what would be the best way to put them to use?
Keeping in mind that I am set on not selling any of it.

it might be best/easiest to buy a 99 3.8L v6 engine for 500 bucks or so with normal miles and drop it right in~ as the 94 has a different fuel system and who knows what else you will have to buy other than a wiring harness and computer etc etc etc etc it will get expensive.. but as you do have a donor car its just a matter of pulling this and that. It will take time though to do all that.

Put the trans from the 00 in the 94 IT WILL WORK!!. I have a 01 v6 trans in mine and all you need to do is put your neurtral safety switch from the 94 on the newer tranny and any other sensors that don't plug in change them "speed sensor".

When you do that drive the 94 and save up and buy the rest of the stuff for the 00.

the 00 has a digital speedometer setup vs mechanical for previous 99 models, thats the only real issue I see right off, the trans types are different but as said above people have experience with bolting them up so thats good.

The v6 tranny in 94 has an eletronic speedo"no cable just wires" But the aode and the 4r70w are pretty much the same tranny but the 4r70w is made a whole lot better. It can be done I have proof.

i just meant the digital speedo gear (magnet vs gear) that they swaped to in 99. The older ones wont be compatible, not sure if you can swap out that unit easy enough for not~ just never heard one way or the other.

Re: Advice? 94 and 00 Mustang, with 99GT parts..

Well, I should've checked this site sooner..haha.
I bought the 1994 Mustang from her, and found a transmission for $110.
After getting with my mechanic and checking it out, it has been installed and works PERECTLY. What a deal!
It's from a 1995 V6.

After that being said, now I need to get the 2000 running..
all it needs is a motor (I know, right?)
I had (and still have) the dream of turning her into a GT but as I have said
too much time and money has been spent.
Until I can raise enough money to do all of it at once,
I've decided to look for a V6 that will work and sell the GT parts I have.

BUT could I use the rear end from the 99 GT in the 94 V6?
Would that benefit in any way?

Re: Advice? 94 and 00 Mustang, with 99GT parts..

It will bolt right in but its 3/4 of an inch wider and will stick the wheels out a little. As long as you still have the stock wheels it won't be bad and putting the gt rearend in it will help since it most likely has a trac-lock. Also depending on the gear ratio it will help too but your speedo will be off a bit until you have it calibrated.

With out a tuner you can go to a ford dealer and have it done but thats only if it has different gears in it. The v6 should have 2.73 gears and if you look on the tag on the gt rearend it should have the same or a 3 with an L and numbers 27 or 55 or maybe 73 inline next to the bolt or the end of the tag.
