everything will need to change. motor, mounts, wiring, computer, trans, radiator, hoses, throttle cable, rear axle wouldn't be a bad idea, fuel lines possibly. basically everything touching the motor.

This is basically a mass rebuild, I hope you have a second vehicle, Hell just do like the show "trucks" and put the 4.6L V8 mated to a 5 spd manual, Yeah! . Except on that show it was a Mazda B series. I think they put a mustang rear end on it too
