V10 Triton swap in a mustang

I have a 1998 Mustang with a V6. I thought I'd consider doing a swap with a V10. I don't know a whole lot about the trucks, or if the engine would even fir in a 1998. I've seen online photos of a V10 Mustang but they didn't have a Triton in it.
So I guess what I'm here for is if anyone has any tips for me I would appreciate it. Also what would be the best year truck to take the engine out of? Would these engines have good HP and Torque for my mustang? I was on Wikipedia and noticed that these motors only have a tad over 300HP until 2005 they have about 360HP. and only 2 and 3 valve heads, are there heads with more valves for performance applications?

They make a good engine for a truck or big car but the aftermarket isn't very supportive for them. Not trying to discourage you too much but there's a lot better performing motors you could use to put in a mustang unless you get the motor for free. I halfway put one into a F150 and they are not as heavy as you might think. The transmissions on the other hand weight a ton. Youtube has a few videos of guys who have put them into mustangs.

yeah i'm kind of in between ideas for my mustang. I mainly want to do the swap just to do it, but i would like something to perform pretty well so thats where i'm stuck. i'm assuming the tritons have loads of torque in the low end but not so much power in the high end right?

Yes. I think the rods are cast too, so it doesn't like high compression or rpms. Much like its little brother the 5.4.

I've done this swap into a foxbody. SN95s are still pretty much fox body cars. same k member and everything. I've got a fully built 3 valve V10, probably out of your price range. As it is it makes around 500hp, but its built to be boosted to around 1200hp
