1998 5.0 Swap 5 speed swap questions
I have a 3.0l ex cab 2wd 5 speed that's gonna get a solid axle coilovers and then a 5.0. I have most of the SAS figured out now I'm curious about the 5.0. Swapping a 5.0 from a 99-01 with an auto wide is unacceptable. I need a tranny that will work 2wd or 4 I don't care it'll be a daily driver. So first question, t5.
Fitting issues and curious about my floorboard, will the shifter come out of my stock linkage holes or would I have to cut the floor up?
Secondly, If it's cheaper, or just easier than I'd expect, what fitting issues would I have with the f150 5.0 5 speed with tcase? from what I understand it can be a bit tricky to fit, Year specifics and model specifics are however hard to come by, any ideas?
I've got most of the info down, I need both harness's and there's very little splicing blah blah blah. PATS both type B, motor bolts in, gotta rock exploder ecu pcm all the wonderful details. Also gonna rock explorer disc rear axle and 4wabs/discs. If I'm gonna do the swap, it's gonna be a 5 speed, so before I go and buy a rolled *** explorer and let it sit in the yard for a month, what am I gonna need Trannywise to bolt a 5speed 2x4 or 4x4 in?
