I wouldn't put 94 head gaskets back on it for sure, either use tbird SuperCoupe gaskets from Fel Pro or 99+ head gaskets, there is a debate as to which are the best, I lean towards Supercoupe, but its debateable, both are probably good.

RGR or Mikael can fix you up with most of what you have listed here, between them and other sponsor sites I imagine they can get you everything you need.
