I recently bought a bellhousing from an American e-Bay auction that came from a 4.0 SOHC Cologne V-6 as fitted to the 2005 and newer Mustang; price was $50 shipped to my residence in the States. The bolt pattern across the top and sides appears identical to a '74-'78 Mustang II 2.8 bellhousing, and a Scorpio V-6 bellhousing I imported from the UK. The 4.0 bellhousing (both OHV and SOHC versions) also bolted to the oil pan, but I don't believe that will hinder your (or mine to a T-5) conversion. Just make sure the Cosworth uses the same bolt pattern as other Cologne V-6s.

I think the key will be sourcing all the Mustang parts, then everything should bolt together. Make sure your input shaft is the correct length, too. The new Mustang uses a hydraulically activated clutch, so you'll also need to engineer and hang a clutch master cylinder.
