So I'm pulling out the fuel injected motor, the computer and all the other new age bs on my V6 2000 Mustang and going to put in a supercharged 347. What, other than a few of the electronic bits and pieces (ignition) am I going to have to replace? I was thinking I may need to replace the tranny (haven't check bell-housing sizes yet)but not really sure.

Other thing I wasn't sure about the computer affecting was the breaks. Any thoughts? Stopping is overrated anyway I guess

El,
You are going to be in for a lot of work to put a Windsor engine in your 2000 Mustang. First off, you will have to replace the cross memeber as they are different for the different engines (pretty sure that the v6 cars got the modular motor cross member by 2000). You will have to change engine computers to an older EEC-IV, which will entail a lot of wiring work both under the hood and dash. Transmission will have to be changed (bellhousings are different). If you are putting in a fairly powerful engine, you probably should upgrade the rear end to an 8.8 unit. Not to say it can't be done, but it would be cheaper to sell that car and buy an older 5.0 for that purpose. Hope that helps.

Scott

Thanks Scott - I hadn't thought of the xmembers. My idea was to remove the computer all together and run a carby. From the sounds of it, I should just pull out the running gear and start afresh. Its a project I plan on working on, I like the 2000 body style but fuel injected motors make baby jesus cry

And what about your States emissions for that year,will removing the newer engine for "older one" present any problem?
I assume you would be running this on the Street.

Something to consider would be getting a 94-95 GT/Cobra that has been wrecked and use it for parts. All the drivetrain with the exception of the rear axle will fit your car, and that would enable you to go fuel injected to make supercharging easier. Plus, if you got one of those cars, it would give you an engine to work off for your 347.
