Physically if it's about the same, maybe we will luck out on motor mounts and steering column location. Probably is just a bolt-right-in situation. Appears to be so based on available engines~

The block is the same, so yes, the Mustang engine will fit. I believe the fuel injection is the same, as is the computer, so it should be a very straight forward conversion.

It will bolt right in,the only difference are the head,but it should bolt right up,with minimal adjustments
