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.

1995 Mustang GT vert: AODE, 2.73 gears, O/R xpipe flowtech mufflers , 410,000~ miles.
2007 Mustang GT: 4.6, 5-speed, 3.55 gears, black on black. (dads car)

+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.

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