I have a 2001 base v6 mustang and am working on putting a carburated 302 (out of an 87 mustang) in it. The transmission in it now is an aod-e and i need to know if i need to go get the trans out of an 87 to make it work. Any suggestions appreciated!

yes you will also have to take electric fuel pumo out of gas tank and get a non electric fuel sending unit.


thnx i knew about the feul pump part. would you happens to know the trans that was in the 87?

no not sure,but sense you going to a V8 you may wont to get one out of a 87 just to be sure.


would i need the driveshaft to match also?



the aode comes in the 94-95 mustang with a windsor bell housing patter but it is an electric over drive trans your better off doing a c4 3 spd auto or an aod non electric out of a fox body mustang.

Thank you just one more question about the swap. Am i correct in the thinkin that i could get a cross member out of a fox and use it? I believe the chassis is similar

YES you can make it work.

the driveshaft in the v6 is the same as the fox v8
