Post LTD Mustang Conversion

Being my first time here, allow me to explain my project:

I currently have a 1989 Ford LTD Crown Victoria - all stock, 5.0/302.

I am rebuilding it with a 5.0HO 302/ 350hp engine, manual transmission. Everything else is going to be rebuilt (suspension/drivetrain/interior), but the engine and transmission are the main concerns right now. I need to know what kind of transmission to get, and also if any of you knows where to get a good transmission. I need something above stock, but not ridiculously performance. I'm not too familiar with transmissions, and I need to get an idea what to look for.

Why waste all that cash on a LTD?



It is just too heavy for serious speed. If you must put the motor in, and the tranny is in top shape, just put in a shift kit. Screw the complication and time of adding a stick.

No kidding, buy a mustang before modifying that car. There isnt a market for restored 1989 LTD's

Where are you getting this 350 hp engine from ? That engine probably has a higher value than the entire car on the blue book.

maybe there is some type of sentimental value or just the thrill of changing an entire car, so leave the guy alone! other people might tell you when you explain new engine and crap they might just say "go buy a cobra" or something like that, so just let him do his project, and just answer his question!

I'm doing it because it's a hobby, and there's not alot of other people out there with what I will have when I'm done. I want a Mustang, but I would rather do this conversion first.
