Exedy that's what I have works great! But I have a 2004 so I don't know what you have? So maybe different.

There's a lot of great clutches out there. I see you've already decided on a Stage 2 Clutch. So, I'd assume that you plan to add a lot of mods or already have a lot of mods and you'll most likely be racing the car. That's good stuff!

If I were you, I'd check out either an Exedy Clutch or Spec. They both make great clutches for your Mustang and I think you'll be very happy with them. I have a Stage 4 Exedy clutch in my 2011 GT and I absolutely love it. The pedal feels very similar to stock, just a tad bit stiffer! However, it handles double the power.

I hope this helps. I honestly don't think you can go wrong. Any Stage 2 clutch out there is going to be much better than Stock.

I would recommend installing both of the items you listed. You're really only going to be doing the clutch job once so you definitely want to replace the throw out bearing while you're in the there. Some clutches come with a new throwout bearing, so make sure you read the "What's in the Box" part of the product page. My Exedy Stage 4 clutch came with a new throwout bearing. My car only had 7k on it when I replaced my clutch (Track use) so my TB was just about new, but I still replaced it.

The Clutch line is also a must have in my opinion. It's a great mod for all 11+ Mustangs. The stock clutch line is plastic and expands and contracts under heat. This will cause the fluid to stop flowing freely, resulting in you missing a shift and grinding a gear. Since installing the clutch line I haven't been locked out of gear once yet!

Hope this helps. Keep in mind this is just my opinion and recommendation. You could get away with not replacing either of these items if you don't want to. You won't regret the decision though!
