Well, we know it starts with an entire engine/trans/axles swap at a minimum.
Add in everything in the engine compartment for plumbing/wiring and the shifter/cables/pedals.
The big unknown is really in the wiring. You might need to swap an entire harness to get the proper wiring from engine to ECM.
Whether the axles will fit to the knuckles/hubs needs investigation, we know the Struts fit the same but what about hub splines? Are the knuckles the same for distance from center line? This part might be the no-brainer, as you prob. want the whole ST brake setup anyways, the question is how many parts needed to get there.

|papaacer||I have a lot put into the car already. I have plenty of people that have done plenty of swaps. My friend just finished his GT500 swap in his crown Vic and it runs wonderfully. I'm not worried about the hastle. I'm also not worried about the cost. I'm worried about part numbers at this point. What will fit and what won't|

The discussion thread in Engine & Trans Swap has a little useful info., like BCM & the rest of the car being the same for each version.
I do think that the only way to do it would require a complete crunched donor to be practical, too many "little things" could trip you up without that complete access for comparison/sourcing.
MAJOR yard sale of leftovers to recover costs afterwards.
