Oh boy.
5.0 engine harness & EEC
O2 harness(important; make sure it is the one that was attached to the engine harness or is exactly off the same year car).
V8 mustang headlight & alt harness(optional) You can lengthen the exisiting alt wires on the 4-banger harness(I didn't)
trans harness form any T5 equipt of simiiar year(plugs under dash, wraps under carpet & around back of drivers seat to the tunnel).
pedal assy & clutch cable from any similiar T5 mustang including 4 bangers
manual speedo cable
Don't forget the air intake elbows, meter, meter mounting bracket.
V8 donor fuel lines; from tank to engine compartment.
(optional) Struts, rotors, calipers, & all brake lines from V8 donor(bigger brakes really are a good idea).
(optional) 8.8 V8 rear diff assembly; drum to drum. Again, your going to need it to handle the increased torque.
That's all I recall right this moment from when i did it almost 2 years ago.....

IMHO: it is much easier & cheaper doing it with a donor car (wrecked V8 mustang) right there beside the conversion cannidate.

Or you could find an SVO motor somewhere, that could be wicked. Seen a few SVO's run low 12's then when their done at the track they just drive home and get like 30 mpg rofl.

Best just to buy a 5.0 Manuel. Im being serious. Its going to cost you they same amount of money to do the conversion. Why convert to somthing thats already out there and relitivly easy to find.

Your in for alot of work.
