Default V-8 Transmission Swaps

I plan on doing a v8 swap on my 94 ranger 2wd 4 cylinder it has an automatic overdrive transmission and 3:73 rear axle I have a donor car 1983 Mercury Grand Marquise With a 302 fuel injected and automatic overdrive transmission I've read a lot about these swaps i just have a few questions what does it take to mount this transmission in my truck and how much body lift will i need to clear the fire wall and any other tips would be greatly appreciated

Default Re: V-8 Transmission Swaps

on my swap using aa plates for the motor mounts, using an AOD, it was the easier part. all I had to do was move the transmission cross member in the forward set of holes in the frame, but 94' I am pretty sure uses a different cross member. it's really going to depend on where you put the engine, though. get it in there and look to see how to make it work once you get it in place. no body lift is needed.
