I should probably clarify myself before someone yells at me. The 94-95 GTs with a 5.0 have the same k-member as the V6. The 4.6 had a slightly different k-member thats sits an inch farther back. When Ford first built the Mustang in 94, everything was the same body/suspension wise until the engine went in. Some cars just got a V6 while others got the V8. So that should also answer the question about the 327 since it is a stroked 302.

I'm about 99% sure you shouldn't have to.
