Engine and Trans swap

My brother's 95 Tbird's engine is getting weak. He is wondering if anyone may have an idea on cost and how hard it will be to put in 99+ Mustang 4.6 and 5spd? Will he need the the computer and harness from the donor car?

Probably. Puting a manual in place of an auto is a lot of work. The fuel rails and return system are different also. Good luck!

Swapping in the engine and tranny you would need to have the donor pcm. No question about that.

replacing the auto with a manual will require some new tooling as well as cutting in the firewall to install the clutch. There will be a lot of work to get that all in there.

Good luck

Wouldn't all of those issues already be taken care of since the Super Coupes were available with the T5?
