Default Need list of all v8 swap parts and also have ?'s

Would like to use used parts. So what oil pan can I use? will stock 88 5.0 manifolds work? what headers could I use? what radiator, one out of my donor 88 mustang. The $300 mustang is a 4speed auto how can I get that wiring harness for the motor and trans and put it in my 4cyl 5 speed ranger? Would I be better off getting a different trans? Should I use an aftermarket wiring harness, how do I get the original wiring and mustang wiring to work together so I can still use tach, cruise,

mustang oil pan will work,manifolds will work might be a pain to run pipe to,for headers and motor mounts look at summitracing.com search (V8 ranger swap).the trans.should be an AOD with a tv cable to control shifting. 2 row radiator from a 4.0 ranger

Visit these sites: www.v8ranger.com or www.mercuranger.com . They'll contain all of the parts needed and used to complete this swap. Also www.v8ranger.com has a sound clip that you'll enjoy many times over. Plus in the other rangers section of V8ranger.com you'll get photos of other swaps Like Tim Sockness's 1998 351 prostreet ranger which was featured in Dec. 2009 Carcraft Magazine.
