2011 BOSS 302 motor into a 2004 f150 POSSIBLE/CRAZY/IMPOSSIBLE???

I plan on buying a 2004 f150 when i return home from afghanistan and have been thinking about how much i hated my old 99 f150 cause it just didnt have enough thunder under the hood. I have want a boss 302 sence the released them in 2011 but really want a pickup truck again.. SO .. i cam up with the crazy idea of have the best of both worlds. just kinda worried up actually pulling it off cause of transmission bolt pattern. Let me know what you think please

Nothing's impossible. How many ponies do you expect to push out the back end of that truck?

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Well the motor comes from the factory pushing 445hp 380fpt .. i really dont plan on doing much to the motor .. going from 285 hp and 330fpt to the boss 302 motor is going to be pretty good. The only thing is that 380fpt is the specs based on the mustangs drive train. i can probly push 400 maybe 420 with the 3speed with overdrive and upgraded gears in the diffs on the f150.. I know it can be done .. Ive just gotta make sure the trans will bolt up to the motor. thats my only concern everything else is pretty simple. its not like im going from carb to efi .. and the motor will fit well under the hood.

all im really looking for is information on the trans. ive got everything else figured out and the things im not positive about my dad has figured out. I need to know if the 5.0L 'coyote' small block has the same bolt pattern as the 4.6L small block... I would think that all the small blocks ford makes would have the same bolt pattern but it just worries me cause its going from a mustang to f150 .

According to Wikipedia, yes, it's a go: List of Ford bellhousing patterns - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
