fox body is a direct bolt in. Just go get everything off a 5-speed mustang. Only thing that will be different is the driveshaft, but I'm pretty sure you can just swap the T5 yoke onto your AOD driveshaft and it will work. Also the flywheel for the 2.3 is probably different than on the 5.0, so pick up a clutch and flywheel for a 5-speed turbo coupe.

-91 Cougar LS, coming soon, complete overhaul with a 427" Windsor.
-90 XR7 5-speed black on black w/sunroof, MP2, coated rotors, double intercooler, 15%OD, ported heads, comp stage 1 cam, 85mm TB, 90MM LMAF, 80# injectors, and ported big valve heads
-98 Mark VIII LSC, Procharger P600b, TR3650 swap and 3.73s.
-90 SC Automatic rustbucket winter beater
-97 Tbird Sport 4.6 Nice weather daily driver
