I've got a friend with a 5.0 in his and is using a mustang floor shifter. But you can most likely use your stock shifter. You may need to modify the linkage though.

Currently I am doing the same swap as you.. I am going to just run a lever thru the floorboard.
Which engine mounts are you using? Also which oil filter kit
Thanks!
