 Welcome from close by, SW Ontario.
I'd like to hear about your hydraulic clutch set-up although my car is and needs to be close to original, so might not be something I'd actually do, but..............!
Geoff.

Ok thanks, I did not expect so much activity off the get go, long used to the 2nd fiddle lost brother 71-3 Mustang treatment....

Hydraulic clutch - quite custom - 1st major thing is to replace the 11" booster with a 71/2" DUAL diaphragm booster from a fox mustang with one of the studs relocated on its housing.
this allowed me to install a CNC brakes master cylinder INLINE with the stock clutch pedal.
I did needle bearing clutch pedal bearing at the time, result is a really well working light effort clutch - used the CNC brakes slave on my T5. effort is less than my 5Spd thunderbird SC, and has worked flawlessly for several 5+ years now.

My EFI swap donor was a 92 Thunderbird 5.0L, I refreshed the engine - disassemble - no machining, physically it bolted in, and the thunderbird factory headers fit perfectly like they were made to fit around the steering box. put a nice oval hole in the dash so the EEC sits above the glove box.
Used the thunderbird harness and worked out everything on my work bench.
Used an inline EFI fuel pump pulling from the regular tank pickup, mounted on a bracket in front of the gastank - this does pull air when below 1/4 tank but manageable.
Fuel Pump relay and inertia switch is in the trunk
Used plastic modern fuel lines routed up passenger side and protected along the way.
Moved the battery to the trunk so I had room for cone filter/MAF.
Running Thunderbird SC electric fan - switched crudely by a temperature sender, not the EEC (yet), and a panic high on fan switch under the steering column for driver operation.
This runs very very well and I have NEVER regretted the swap, pays dividends in torque.
Other tid bits:
94' tan leather seats and rear seat custom covered to match 94' style (only drawback here is the 94 seat backs are thicker so you loose rear seat room.
Flexaform composite rear springs
torque thrust wheels
aluminum flywheel
typical custom exhaust - but not happy with drone around 2400rpm
1" front springs drop
frame connectors (were required following EFI swap due to torque twist chipping door jams)
Added 3point inertia front seat belts
