Kit contents are all useable. Your present shifing rods will have to be modified to use. Can be done, but look for a set of the correct rods. If you can't find some, I may have a set.
Best,

In my experience, the 250 will not fit comfortably into the 1965-66 Mustang engine bay. Also, it gives the power of a 6 cylinder with the economy of a V8. I would avoid the 250, personally. ...

The I6 is what it is and IMHO cannot become a horsepower monster economically. Changing to a V8 requires a substantial change in suspension in addition to the engine, itself. The 351W option...

Don't forget to address the front sump vs. rear sump issue that will have to be overcome. Looked into this swap years ago and decided it would cost substantially more than going with a V8.

I second your decision to go with a 5.0. My personal choice would be carburetion in place of fuel injection, even though the injection would be more efficient. T-5 is a good choice and easy enough...
