If you're asking "how hard" it is to do the swap, and "how much" it costs, then you're already getting into a nearly impossible project. A project like this is a "cost-is-no-option" venture.

Any modern fuel injected engine is not going to play well with a 60s-era Mustang, ESPECIALLY the 2011 model. The new Mustang engine is entirely dependent on computerized electronics, throttle, and transmission parts. You'll not be able to keep the car looking anywhere near "stock", as you'll literally have to rip EVERYTHING out and start with a bare car frame.

You might be doing better buying a new carbureted crate motor. That will be the closest you can get to a "swap" solution.

no cause it makes no sense to spend 20k on a brand new car just for the engine when you can spend half that and get an old V8 to put out twice as much
