In order to identify what kind of Mustang transmission you have, you need to check the door tag on your drivers side door jam. If you look down to the bottom right of the tag, you should see an area labeled "TR." Underneath this label there are 5 letters and numbers. The only one that we are concerned with is the first alpha-numeric character which corresponds to your Mustang Transmission.
If you have a 6 as your first digit, you have five-speed manual, T-45 OD Mustang Transmission. This is the standard Mustang transmission that is found in 1996 to Mid 2001 Mustang GTs as well as 1996 to 1998 Mustang Cobras. If you have a 5 as your first digit, your car came with a T-5 OD Mustang transmission. Finally, if you have a K as the first digit in the "TR" code, you have a TR-3650. This Mustang Transmission is found in mid-2001 to 2004 Mustang GT, the 2003 and 2004 Mach1 and the 2001 Cobra. The 2005-2007 manual Mustang GT's also a T-3650.
-that's from American muscle-
just match up the transmissions, if hey are the same well there you go,
It's totally doable. You need the COMPLETE engine and harness and computer.
And then I could send you a tune if you have an SCT handheld that will disable the Vehicle Anti Theft system so that your V6 key can start the engine. Saves you from needing the locks and everything swapped from the GT too. I helped a member on another mustang forum do this 2 weeks ago.
you'll need the ecu, tranny, engine, and a couple other things but yeah it will.
ECU, wiring harness, engine, suspension, rear end, transmission.
Basically you are going to need the whole donor car.
The V6 trans will not bolt up with the GT engine. I believe the automatics use the same trans but you will need a different bell housing.

The front end suspension on the GT is also stiffer to help support the extra weight of the engine and performance. Not that you couldn't upgrade your suspension later using aftermarket parts, but it's worth looking into.

just the way I wanted it. (1 of 113)
OK, so I've added a few things to it. Check my Profile - too many to list here.
Any engine swap is solely dependent on how much patience, time, and money you have for chasing down problems and parts. If you keep the stock rearend, it won't last as long as the GT rearend. If you use an adaptor for the transmission, it probably won't last as long either.
I'd say either supercharge your V6 or trade in for a GT unless you're handy enough to handle this extensive of a swap. It's not at all like trading a 6 for a V8 in the old cars used to be.
the 5R55RS auto trans is used by the V6 and by the GT. You will also need the GT's cooling system in addition to the before mentioned parts. Also the driveshaft if i'm not mistaken. Its a decent amount of parts but is doable with enough time and energy. and a few bucks
