If you are going to swap the 5.0 in for the 3.8, I highly recommend that you find an entire donor car (91-93 'Bird or Cougar) that way if you end up needing something else towards the end of the swap, you've got the car there. If you get it just the engine/tranny from a junk yard, and end up needed some pieces, then you haveta find the part.
It may take a bit longer to find a donor 5.0, but there's a good chance it would make life easier in the long run. Just some advice - otherwise good luck with the swap if you choose to do so.
