It really all depends on what you want to do.
First question....what other mods do you have?
Technically, a wet kit from just about any nitrous company will work. Aside from maybe a mounting bracket or a fitting to tie into the fuel line, everything else is basically universal. The way that you tailor it to your specific application is by figuring out the fuel pressure and jetting it accordingly.
If you want to do it on a budget, but still do it right and as safe as possible, I'd advise you to run 1-step colder copper plugs gapped down to probably .038, make sure you're running premium fuel when you spray, and keep the shot size reasonable. If you go over a 75 shot I'd advise a tune for it. Realistically, 75 divided by 6 is 12.5. That is only an additional 12.5 HP per cylinder, that's really not as much stress on each rod/piston as you may think when you think "75 additional HP".
Another few maintenance things are to replace your fuel filter when you install it (you want to MAKE SURE you don't run lean), and I'd probably make sure the oxygen sensors are fresh and functioning well. May want to clean your K&N if you have one or replace the air filter.
A window switch is definitely a nice safety mechanism. If it's in the budget, I say get one. The N2MB WOT box is one of the best tools out there for the $$$, but I'm not sure if it's compatible with V6 mustangs. I'd shoot them an e-mail and ask.
