Default mustang engine?

I was thinking about doing a mustang v8 swap with my 2000 ford ranger 3.0 v6 and building the mustang engine from the ground up using aftermarket lifters a hyper cam a hevyer flywheel and junk like that would you guys reccommend that i keep the factory standered auto tranny or is it really that hard to switch it to a manual tranny?
any info and input would be helpful

Your gunna have to change the tranny it wont bolt up anyways

----------

t-5 out of a mustang for a 5 speed , 4 speed if you auto then just use the tranny out of a expo or something. Dont forget you have pats and all the computer and wiring also

You will already have the hole in the floor for the shifter arm.

2wd to 4wd is not complicated. If you go with the electric style 4wd you gotta have all the wiring.
