I would only go for the more expensive body if you plan to race it. Otherwise I think the standard body would be OK for just driving and the occasional get on it run. Brooklyn-427 pretty well covered the other things that I would have recommended.

Also source your transmission package from summit or modern driveline and have it shipped with kit, id go for a T5 W/C if your staying around the 400hp level. also anything else you can think of like a MSD box , fuel system parts and such like. Maybe look at the power steering option , flaming river do a RHD mustang 2 power rack.
