Yes it will bolt up just fine. If your not worried about boosting it a 93-02 5.0 will do fine. If you plan on some FI 87-92 mustangs have the forged pistons. :good:I gotta 2000 3.8 v6 I wanna do a 5.0 swap but was woundering if the manual 3.8 trans would bolt up to the 5.0? Also what's the best year model to get a 5.0 out of?
