FORD 4.2 Build

I will be acquiring a 4.2 from a F150 I have a 98 mustang. I have a few questions though.
Should I get the 98 engine ?
Should I get 98 F150 motor mounts ? Will the fit my existing k member. ?
What electrical wires need to be changed or adapted to fit my mustang ?

I do plan on doing a complete overhaul, new cam new valves and springs but I'm keeping it N/A
Does anybody recommend brands parts and prices..???? I have seen people get scorpion rocker arms. Will these do me any good ??

I also want to put a new timing chain and gear. Any brands or anything is greatly appreciated as I don't want to throw ebay parts in my build.

Thanks a ton fellow stang owners .... this build is located in vegas... afterwards I want to decal it up .... hit me with info

I had this engine in a 2005 F150; great engine, but lacking in the way of performance parts/mods for it. The usual stuff can be done (free flowing exhaust and some canned tunes are available). The canned tunes though are going to be designed around its use in a truck; the shift points may not work well around your transmission, unless you have a manual, in which cas this part is moot.

Are you simply looking to replace a tired engine in your Mustang? Why was the 4.2 selected?

I have the T5 transmission yes....
I want the 4.2 because in other forums I've seen, the 4.2 is better than the 3.8 by a little bit. Its also a common engine to find complete.
Last part is the m112 supercharger can bolt onto the 4.2 ...
While doing this I do realize I must perform a split port swap as well by cutting my fuel rail and adding a return to the 4.2 line.if anyone has a write up for the 4.2 swap it would be so great... I'm mainly worried about electrical connections... I might buy a f150 repair manual to get the diagrams.
