Question Help! Will a T-5 fit to 3.8L without anything extra?

I have a extra T-5 from another sn95 5.0L that I put a tremec in its place and would like to put in my V6 3.8L 95 mustang which is now automatic but is on the fritz! Will everything just bolt up?
Thanks Bryan

Everything should fit fine, but im not sure if there is any wiring you have to take care of. You will, of course, have to get a clutch kit and carve a hole for the clutch pedal if your car was originally an auto. I dont know too much more about the swap though, good luck!

yes, make sure you use the t5 wiring harness and plug it in on the passenger side firewall, wiring under the dash is easy if you know what you're looking for. theres also a set of wires that just has a jumper plug that is only a wire running from one side to the other of the plug that is plugged into the plug that is actually part of the wiring harness that you will want to remove to keep the car from starting without the clutch pressed in. and also a plug that goes to the box on the clutch pedal assembly. i didnt have to do any hole carving but thats just me, i also dont have my console down yet so you will have to get all that stuff and the heat shield. message me if you have any questions ill try to help you out

You will need the 3.8L bellhousing, clutch and flywheel also. The V6 flywheel is larger, designed for an 11" clutch.

The bellhousing spaces the starter properly for the larger flywheel, but the starter is the same part # for 5.0L and 3.8L.

The Spec brand flywheels have an additional bolt circle for the 10.5" clutches.

No.. I'm not "Fast."
