Do some searching on this and other Mustang sites and you will find all of the information that you need to make your swap work. I would personally use a 5-speed or AOD transmission if doing the swap.

The good thing about doing this swap for you is that you can use all factory parts from the jy or a donor car to make this cheap and easy....I recommend a complete donor car. This way you can look at how each part goes before removing / swapping, also, all the parts are compatible. There are some nuances involving parts / wiring from different years.

Your 4 cylinder car will have a 7.5 rearend in it. That will last you for a long while if you do not abuse it too badly. Then swap in a 8.8 with the gearing of your choice when it is affordable / available.

Here is a link to a thread on another forum containing lots of swap information for you.:

If you are just looking for more power then consider a 2.3T drivetrain from a TurboCoupe. This will likely provide all the power you desire along with retaining the 4 cylinder and better gas mileage. Many TC's came with auto's also. Modifications can produce V8 power.

Good luck with your project.
