Default 1997 3.0 to 5.0 or similar swap

hello, my truck is registered in a state without inspections or emissions. So I'm looking for a swap to a bigger engine and MANUAL transmission that will fit my 1997 Ranger. I hear that some people have some problems with different things like shifting to second gear, starting problems etc. I've been looking in the local classifieds and junkyards for a 5.0 Mustang or Explorer with attached Tranny. I know I will also need Motor Mounts. Planning on taking to a Mechanic with all the parts because I don't think I have the right skills or equipment. Any suggestions? Is it worth it? Or should I just put a 4.0 in it and get a super charger or chip for the added hp's.
