Default another 5.0 question

this is probably already on the forum but i couldnt find it so forgve me if it is. I am looking to do 5.0 swap in my 93 splash 2wd and it has a 3.0v6 with a 5speed tranny. I want to know if the 5 speed tranny would "bolt up" to the 5.0, or would i be better off getting an entire drive train from a 5 speed 5.0 stang

The bell housings are different, and the M5OD-R1 is an integral bell housing (you can't change it). You are going to need to use a v8 transmission. Search for a Ranger 8.8" swap if you want to replace the 7.5". Drive shaft will either need to be modified or made custom, lucky if it's the right length - definitely don't want to base you engine placement on a drive shaft you have. A brand new custom made drive shaft for my swap was under 300.
