For a straight swap you need to use the engine from a '99-00 vehicle. I know the if you want to swap an older 3.8L engine from say a '95-'97 to the '99 you need a different fuel rail. Reason why yo u say the injectors are wrong. Check out this forum, and search engine swap, you will find some goof information...https://www.v6mustang.com/forums/1994-2004-v6- mustang-tech.88/
