Default swap from 2.3 to 5.0?

I am in the process of buying a 1991 2.3 manual mustang. It's a roller so it has no engine nor transmission. I would like to make the swap to a 5.0 engine and I was wondering if someone here has a list of the parts I need to make the swap? I know this guy that has a 1989 5.0 mustang but he is only interested in selling in parts. Should I use the parts of the 1989 to make the swap or just wait and look for 1991 that is already a 5.0?
P.S: I am new to this forum so I don't know if I posted this in the right place.
