The engines do not share the same bellhouseing bolt patter. If you had a 3.8 it would be a bolt in, the 5.0 and 3.8 share the same bellhousing pattern. The 4.6 has a bellhousing all its on. Baumann performance does offer an adapter plate to make them bolt up though. If you want a 5.0 just change the engine and trans out of a earlier T'bird , but good luck finding the 5.0 motor mounts for the 89 and up birds.{they are very hard to find}
