4.2L and T5 question

whats up everyone,
so I have an 82 fox that i purchased a year ago. after checking out the blocks serial, it turns out the engine in there is a 4.2L off a 79 mustang. I won't be swapping it out until the beginning of next year, plust it drove just fine cross country so ill give it some more drivning before I take it out. I will be replacing the SROD that's in there for a WC T5 and T5 bell housing ready to go in. my question is, what all do I need to make this set up work. I have searched online and haven't found anything on this a swap with this engine. no surprise there since it's so underpowered. any info will be greatly appreciated!

The best way to do that type of transmission swap is to find a donor car so you can get everything. The bits and pieces are what kills you.
