Yes it will hold and I think the max hp a single port mustang could handle is around 300rwhp or it could be 350rwhp

You should be fine but it may be worth it to rebuild it before install. If its corroded on the outside, itl be.corroded on the inside.

It's roots/positive displacement.... No brackets. But you will need a different belt and maybe a tensioner.

You've seen a supercoupe right, and you've seen a v6 mustang? Good then you would know the supercoupe's m90 is driven by a second belt and to do that he needs the supercoupe accessory brackets and a s-ton of other parts. Not just the blower/inlet

And if your a visual type of person:


Edit:

-Eaton M90 blower (off of a 89-95 Thunderbird Super Coupe)
-Super Coupe Blower top (often refered to as a "blower hat")
-Super Coupe Lower Intake Manifold
-Super Coupe Inlet Plenum (connects the throttle body to the blower)
-Super Coupe Air Intake Tube (you'll use this to connect your 94-95 Mustang GT throttle body to your stock V6 Mustang MAF)
-94-95 Mustang GT throttle body (Super Coupe throttle body WILL NOT work with the Mustang throttle cables!!!)
-Super Coupe Upper Intake Manifold (connects the lower intercooler tube to the lower intake manifold)
-Super Coupe Thermostat Housing
-Super Coupe Jackshaft Pulley Bracket (accessories bracket that mounts on passenger side head)
-Super Coupe Power Steering Pump Bracket (accessories bracket that mounts on the drivers side head)
-Super Coupe Crank Pulley
-Super Coupe Water Pump
-Super Coupe tensioner pulleys (for accessories belt, jackshaft belt, and blower belt)
-Super Coupe Injectors (89-93 Super Coupes had 30lb/hr injectors, 94-95 Super Coupes had 36lb/hr injectors)
-Super Coupe Fuel Rail
-Super Coupe throttle cable bracket (you will have to use the base of the Super Coupe bracket and weld it to the end of the Mustang bracket)
-94-95 Timing Chain Cover (if you have a 96-98, you'll need either a 94-95 Mustang OR a 94-95 Super Coupe timing chain cover)
-Super Coupe Intercooler
-Super Coupe Valve Covers
-Super Coupe coil pack bracket (will probably be already attached to your Power Steering Pump Bracket)
-Super Coupe Throttle Position Sensor
-Super Coupe Throttle Position Sensor Pigtail (needs to be soldered into your mustang wiring harness)
-Super Coupe Intake Air Temp Sensor
-Super Coupe Intake Air Temp Sensor Pigtail (needs to be soldered into your mustang wiring harness)
AND DONT FORGET TO...
-Replace the Super Coupe water temp sensor with the Mustang water temp sensor (this way you can use as much of the Mustang wiring harness as possible)
-Bend the brake line (the one that is the closest to the front of the car, the one that is closest to the firewall will clear just fine) that comes out of the master cylinder towards the rear of the car to make room for the lower intercooler tube.

It's possible, you may be able to find the info online if you look hard and far enough. Or you can do trial and error. With everything installed use string to run around the pulleys and let the parts place measure it. Be sure to count the ribs in the belt too. If you do it this way your looking at min two trips to the parts place and Possibly/likely more.

Second thought just pm esg6whatever for help as he apparently knows exactly what you need, where to get it, and how to go about it.

See, like I said this guy will help you. He knows exactly what you need.

Hey just trying to keep the guy from getting screwed for 800$ when he needs another 800$ of parts, the s/c is the easy part.
