All right so my question is I'm doing a full 2000 GT swap into my sn95 96 GT reason being I acquired a 2000 GT that was wrecked with super low miles everything on molested untouched so it's complete car my 96 broke the trans I had built a motor and ended up selling it so now I got a shell and a wrecked 2000. My big question is if I'm putting everything I'm talking harnesses- etc with the drivetrain into the 96 what fuel system do I need to run since the 96 had ever return style and then 2000s did not my issue being I have brand new gas tank and all that for my 96 and the 2000 I seem to have cut the fuel lines trying to get it out so those are no longer good so I'm trying to possibly use the 96 stuff still that's already on the car with my new tank is that possible or where would I go about making that work with the electronic fuel pressure regulator with the ECM in the 2000

Your combination will run with your return style system that you had in your 96-- Basically you are just going from an NPI to PI conversion. Do not even understand why Ford opted to do this-- the returnless systems peter out when you start any kind of boost and big HP without pump boosters and such --use your fuel rails from the 96- personally I would not change the harness or the computer or the gas tank and stick in the engine and trans. Trans is the same as in your 96 a 4R70W. It should run fine as long as your install is correct. Crank it up and see if anything codes and work it out from there. You can over complicate this or keep it simple. Worst that could happen is a SCT chip and a tune to get everything to work together but I do not believe you will have to go that far. There is a ton of info on this on the net but you will have to gleen through it to shuck the garbage out. Keep us up on your swap-- Wish you the best

Thanks for the help. I would just throw it in like said with my old stuff. But I don't have emu harness rails ect only gas tank and pump from original. I had pi swapped fresh motor with my own cop conversion harness setup but all that went with the sale. Also trans is now going to be tremec 3650. So might just pay to find me a set of 96 rails or maybe aftermarket. One of the reasons I'm having to go so extra with swapping is I don't got all my important things. so I'll be essentially body swapping the entire car. Yay me.

Never sell your stuff till you are done with your build no matter how tempting the money is at that point-- it always costs you more to replace the things you had. Of course this is just an old school opinion. The only time you can safely do that is if you are changing engine platforms--like from a 2v to a 4v or Coyote and such. I would sell everything and get a new edge platform with your desired stick and pi engine for three or four grand and be done with it. Plenty of cars out there with a stick-- which I personally stay away from especially if it is going to be a daily driver or drag track car or playtoy. I have a 98 Gt for straight line racing with a purpose built 4R70W that was a 2v for many years but now a 4v and a 96 Cobra with a Tremec for roundy-round. Unless you are in love with your 96 gt with all the work that's involved I would be swapping cars not parts and get shifting around town with your newer ride. Anyway just another old school opinion.

Oh my 96 isn't going anywhere. Don't to much care for new edges. I've mostly owned fox's these two are my first mod motor cars. Had some learning to do after a few years of abusing and few motors into them. I don't mind the work rather have my clean old body with slightly newer everything. For the most part it's just parts swapping was just curious about how to run my fuel system with new drivetrain old style body return system

For sure there is a huge learning curve- I went from a 69 Dodge Dart with a built 360 to the Gt and was scratching my head for a bit- Now I would not have anything but a modular platform especially a forged 4v. Nothing breathes like them-- the Ls's are still trying to catch up--- Good luck with your build
