This is a well established swap that uses mostly factory parts and there is aftermarket support for the rest. The best way to start is to do some reading.

yep guys, i just purchased another 89 ranger (parts truck) and a carb 302 and a t-5 for a hundred bucks!!!! now the t-5 came out of a 89-93 four banger mustang.i know that i'll prolly have to rebuild it to withstand v-8 power, and also buy a bell housing for her to.so if any body has some parts that r just layin around let me know.i'll buy em'. thanx!!
