We recommend breaking this crate engine in properly. Latemodelrestoration.com will not be held accountable for any damages that may occur due to improper break-in methods. Normal break in conditions consist of 500 miles at normal operating conditions.
It is actually a direct fit, however there are a couple things you will need to change on your SN95 Mustang
I would recommend using a set of Canton valve covers (CAN-65345) and this Ford Racing timing cover/water pump kit ( M8501A50). You may need a cowl hood and a 1 inch intake manifold spacer for extra clearance

I think this motor would easily handle that kind of boost Michael. A stock 5.0 will handle 8-10 lbs of boost and since this is a 4 bolt main block with a complete forged rotating assembly, you would be more then safe assuming you have a good tune and the fuel and ignition system has been upgraded as well.
I am not sure what head gaskets and bolts they use, but I would imagine they are the highest quality FRPP items.

It will require some extensive work to install this in your 97 as it is setup for a modular engine, and this is a pushrod engine. A K member from a 94-95 will be needed for it to physically fit, followed by the front dress, radiator etc. If you google "push rod swap", there are several write ups on various forums that elaborate on what is involved swapping a pushrod into a modular car. The same processes needed will apply to this engine.

I have a 94 5.0 gt40 heads, intake manifold, and bbk shorty ceramic headers.
can I transfer over the intake manifold and headers and what else would you recommend I would need for build?
also, should I keep the heads that are on this or would the gt40e heads be better?

With this crate motor, the headers would be a direct swap. You would be limiting yourself by re-installing a GT40 or stock style intake back on. I would look into our SVE upper and lower intake kit (SVE-9424A). The heads that are on the crate motor would outflow the GT40e.

I have a stock 93 with an aod. Will I need anything special to do this? Also, will I need to do anything special with the water pump and timing cover? Will it bolt up to an aod? Will my stock intake fit? Or will I have to change my intake set up? Stock injectors? Sorry for all the noob questions. Just love these cars and I finally got my own.

Carlos, you can use your stock parts on this engine but the stock intake, injectors etc...will kill the performance of this crate engine. The timing cover and water pump on this engine would work on your 93. For your AOD you would re-use your stock flexplate and converter.
