5.0 swap in 2.3 Mustang

This swap is a piece of cake. No need to go to specialty shops as all the parts you need can come from a scrap yard. Just change the motor mounts for the 5.0 ones. the cross member is the same and the exhaust can be picked up at any discount muffler outlet. I'd get rid of the 7.5 rear end and go for a 8.8" or a modified 9" if you can afford it, there are lots of them floating around. AOD trans for this swap are as plentyful as rabbits, and even T-5 can be had for a song.
