I would look for an '87 or later motor, so that you would get the forged crank and decent rods. If you find one from a Mustang from '87 to '92, you get forged pistons as well.

For your other questions, check these guys-

Have fun!

Very easy to swap in a manual as well. Sinister07 is right on the money with the engine suggestion. That's what I would go with as well.
