transmission options

Hello all! I picked up a '89 notch the other day with the stock 2.3 and stock automatic transmission no mods ( suspension or body) for $470. I got it started and it actually drove on and off the trailer. As I am starting to plan my build I figure I will go with a 302 that I have from a previous mustang. I also have the original 5 speed for the 302. So my question would be, should I do a transmission swap and put in the 5 speed or should I buy a different manual transmission or should I get a performance automatic? I tired to search for options but came up with nothing. Any advise is appreciated!

Changing from auto to manual costs about 300 dollars and a 30 rack if you got a mustang junkie buddy. So auto or manual shouldn't make the decision the decision should be based on the transmission in the better shape
