5.0 swap

I just picked up a 93 LX coupe. It's a 4 banger but I'm going to throw about 30,000 into it. I'll be putting a 306 ford racing crate motor and a ford racing t5 tranny. Everything I'm putting in it will be brand new. What are the bare bones I will need before adding all the aftermarket parts? Any help appreciated

$30k to spend and you're going to put a FRPP crate motor and a T-5 into it...

30k budget? Boss 302 motor, and a tough tremec 6 speed. All supporting mods, (suspension, torque boxes, etc..) then make that LX look stock.

Or, better option, take that $30k and buy a 2011 GT with good mileage outright and call it a day. Or buy a terminator and pocket the other $10-$15k. Or get a $10k hooker...

Body work and paint is 9k, parts 19k plus wheels and tires and stereo. It'll be street/strip car roll cage harnesses racing seats the works. I need to change out fuel lines right?

Yeah you need to change almost everything man. It would probably be easier, and cheaper to buy a car that is built close to how you want it. But hey if you want to build it, then more power to ya!
