Yes it will bolt up just fine. If your not worried about boosting it a 93-02 5.0 will do fine. If you plan on some FI 87-92 mustangs have the forged pistons. :good:

Its not a straight forward bolt up. You are going to need the 5.0 manual bell housing fly wheel and clutch set. The flywheel is larger on a 5.0 so it sets the starter lower on the bell housing
