V6 4.0 Engine swap questions

I just bought an 05 4.0 Mustang engine and 5 speed auto tranny I am going to put into my Suzuki Sidekick. I'm sure that will piss off some of you. I want to know if I install the engine with no o2 sensors will I have engine problems? Too Rich maybe. And I wanted to know if I can replace the motor driven throttle body with one from a 04 GT model? I have the entire wiring harness and computer. Any other problems you can think of will help. I also was planning on having a custom driveshaft made so I could use my Zuki rear end which is a 4.62 ratio. Is this going to be too much of a problem. I have heard of running 3.73's or 4.10's but not 4.62. Thanks in advance!

Is this some kind of a joke? Or are you serious?

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17

You can go without O2's if you shut them off with a programmer, you will have to custom build a TB setup to do what you are wanting to do, and the Suzuki rear end may not be strong enough for the 4.0's torque.

No one is a mind reader - questions can help sometimes

2002 Sonic Blue v6 5-speed
Mods: K&N FIPK2 CAI, Motoblue 42% UDP, Steeda Tri-Ax, next up - time for a new clutch I think and a lightweight flywheel if I can find a relatively inexpensive one...

I was going to rebuild my Zuk engine but it is so underpowered I just couldn't justify the cost. I ended up getting the 2005 Mustang V6 and 5 speed auto tranny 900 miles for a great deal on ebay for $400! I couldn't pass it up!

... are you serious? That guy is always on here, helping people out, including me many of times. He doesn't post a lot because he has questions, or just because he is doing it for fun. He is actually helping people out. Good luck with your imaginary car.
