swap engine, drivtrain and rear end

Any advice/thoughts appreciated.

I have 2 mustangs that I am making one out of. My mustang is a rebuilt/modified 3.8, manual transmission rebuilt, converted to dual exhaust, GT rear end, custom tunes in the CPU with other miscellaneous new part with a totaled body thanks to me.

The new mustang is a 3.8 automatic standard parts with a clean body

The plan is to move the engine, exhaust, drivetrain (pedal assembly also), rear end and CPU to the new car along with other miscellaneous parts. Should we expect any unusual issues with wiring harnesses or anything else you guys can think of? Any advice would be appreciated..

They are both 1995 3.8 base models, even the color schemes are the same. The only mechanical difference is that mine is a manual and the other is automatic so we have to move the pedal assembly also.

I would say it would work. Just swap everything from the Manual car over to the Automatic car. Double check everything and leave nothing to chance.
