All computer electronics for the motor you choose & maybe motor mounts.

ANS.. transmission, mounts, drive shaft possible. What else? If you do this in a professional installation, you may end up with more in this conversion than the car will be worth after you are done! Consider taking the money this will cost and the trade in value of your car and just upgrade.

I don't plan on trading in my t-bird. Besides I got a 09 cls 63 amg in my garage. I want to make my t-bird into sleeper.

Into a sleeper

Trans will adapt, you need nothing past the trans.
