If I'm correct, you will have to change the brain, wireing harnes for the 4.6 to the 5.0, fuses, and perhaps air induction system. 1992 CVs came with a 4.6 or a 5.0 (some other engine sizes but I dont remember). The 5.0 from a mustang will have differnt engine mounts. You should be able to get away with useing 1989-1992 CV 5.0 engine mounts same goes for trans mounts. Heck, go to a junkyard and pull all the electronics of a rear end collison car (be prepared to spend $$$ on new sesnors) and swap it all, it will fit then. Its easy to swap the electronics when the motor is out (just incase you didnt know :p). Just make positive the 5.0 you have is not a dud (never go by what the seller says unless their a dealer with a return). I got a 1988 mustang 5.0 in the back yard and paid $700 for it, the seller said it was sweet and smooth, always changed oil. Well its crap, 2 pistons shot, intake gaskets cracked, 2 blown injectors and striped trans bolt to boot. Its collecting dust and rust now. check www.car-part.com or if any one else knows of a better place for the mounts and some times entire wiring harness with brains. I really suggest just getting a CVs 5.0 with harness and replace it (do not splice waires, the plugs are there for a reason). If I'm wrong please some one correct me, I don't want any thing going wrong. Laterz
