What transmission do you currently have? If you have the Ford tranny, it would probably make it a whole lot easier to swap it also because some of the 81 transmissions weren't the best. Also, not sure where you are, but you might want to check to see if there are any smog laws that require the engine to be the same year or newer than the vehicle it's going into.

This is about V8 swaps, but there's lots of good info on this page. If you go about 1/4 the way down, there's info on the transmissions.
