Check Ebay. There is a seller called "Autoparts Express" that you can get a factory style clutch kit with parts from the major manufacturers for $104 shipped. They are out of Miami or somewhere close. It comes with a 12mo/12k mile warranty. The throwout bearing on mine went out in less than 1000 miles and they shipped a replacement out to me within a week. It took my buddy and I 12 hours to remove everything and reinstall everything as far as total labor time is concerned. This was because we also replaced the pilot bearing, broke a stud on the passenger side exhaust manifold (heavy rust) and ended up replacing the entire manifold. It was our first time doing a clutch on a v6 Mustang, we've done a couple on the 5.0L Mustangs before. Take the passenger front wheel off completely so that you can access the upper starter bolt.
Also, the flywheel weighs a ton and a half so be cautious about your removal of the flywheel bolts. Forgetting to reinstall that damn block to bellhousing adapter plate added some time to it too. I used antiseize on the manifold studs before it all went back together and it took me 1:15 to remove everything by myself the second time around.
One last note, the throwout bearings on a Mustang are notorious for early and frequent failure (squealing sound). The CenterForce bearing, part number N1714 works for both the v6 and v8 Mustangs up to 2004 model year. cheapest I have seen them is about $40 shipped but you'll never have to replace it as long as the clutch is in the car.
