How it sits now:
Now for some questions. Not to sure where to start...I plan on pulling a motor from either a 5.0 explorer, a 5.0 f150, or a newer body mustang from LKQ. I plan on rebuilding the motor mostly. But what is the best way to go? What is the easiest way with the quickest time and most direct swap? I know I need the complete motor its self, a bell housing to fit my t5, flywheel, clutch, computer, and some of the wiring harness? Can some one list the exact parts need for this swap? I very seriously doubt there is a full 87-93 5.0 mustang sitting up there for the easiest swap ever so im going with any other 5.0 ford I can find.
