Depends on how much power you are going to be pushing. If it is below 350hp I would use the ford racing t-5 rebuild kit and call it a day. A better clutch wouldn't be a bad idea either.

+1 on the FRPP rebuild kit. That and a good clutch you'll be pretty hard pressed to break the T5 with less than 350-400hp. I've seen tons of forums say you can break them at 300hp, even 250, but talking to guys that have built budget 5.0's, the T5 can take a beating every now and then, breaking it ends up being more a matter of how you drive rather than what your hp numbers are. Dumping the clutch at redline every time you pull up to a light while wearing slicks...well, bone stock the tranny prolly won't last long.

Ford Racing M-7000-A - Ford Racing T-5 Transmission Rebuild Kits - Overview - SummitRacing.com

About $250 if you do it yourself. Plus whatever clutch you get to go with it.
