ZEN357 Swapping motors and transmission in the newer cars is not as easy as everyone makes it seem to be.

07gtS197 No problem. I didnt mean to come off as a dick buts its just much easier and cost effective to start off with something you want.

07gtS197 There is a lot more to the swap than dropping the motor in, some examples are a new k member and motor mounts. Also you will need a gt wiring harness and ecu. And no you cannot reuse your t5 because the bellhousing bolt pattern is not the same.

Bottom line, a lot of work will need to be done but it can be done. My advice, though, would be to sell your current mustang and buy a gt.
