Default 289 into a ranger

I have a 289 HiPo out of a 67' cougar... it has an automatic transmission... my truck is standard... would it be hard to find a standard transmission for this motor... what kind of ballpark figure money wise am i looking at?

well im not absolutly sure that this will work mind you but a t-5 or a t-56 where designed for the 302 block which should be the same as a 289 or 351

I have a 1990 ford ranger v6 2.9 liter that I plan on putting a 289 in it. I don't know if I will have to change transmissions or run into any other obstacles. Any suggestions?

I would bet much of the information for a 302 swap would also work for a 289 swap.
