the 95 mustang is the same engine. the SAME engine. no difference in performance or power at all. a swap would be of no benefit to you at all, whatsoever.
Delete the EGR, you mentioned not chipping it if you kept the same injectors, MAF, etc. You're still flowing more air and need more fuel for that, that the stock tune computer cannot compensate for you. You need a tune, or at the least, a chip. If you're doing this, you might as well use 19# or 24# injectors so the extra power is getting extra fuel without any doubt in your mind. Also, if you need the chip anyway, spend less money on the swap and just delete the EGR. It will save you headaches and time and money. All beneficial to your project eh?
Your throttle cables will work, and being a 97, you have the 4r70w. The bracket should work with your cables, but you might want to consult racecougar, SplitPortBird, or 4.3cougar to be sure. They have the experience, I just have the book smarts.
