Yes, that k-member will work just fine.

Tenative parts list:
Motor mounts/engine plate
oil pan
headers

The rest will depend on exactly what you're looking to do.

Have a good day!

If your k-member has motor stands, you can use the conversion motor mounts if you choose to.

That's up to you.

<quote> What kind of chassis mods will I have to do? <end quote>
Once again, that's up to you. Your 93 Mustang is your strip car, right? What chassis mods did you do to it? Take into account the power (torque) your 521 is going to have compared to your 93 and decide how stiff of a chassis you're comfortable with. The stiffer the better- some guys don't even do sub frame connectors or reinforce the control arm boxes. Others do a 10 point cage welded to through floor subframe connectors.

Ultimately, it's your car and you can do what ever you want. If you want to leave the p/s, you may have to fabricate to make it work, but that's your option. Do some searching on the internet and see what people with similar combos are doing. Then, see if they have positive or negative comments about the given mods. Base your decision on your research.

Have a good day!

Since I happily tossed my p/s, I don't know how much fabbing would be needed.

For motor mounts, you'll have to get the conversion mounts- not just any 460 motor mounts will work.

I had to modify my radiator support, but I believe that was because of the size of my radiator (31x19). I imagine a smaller radiator could easily fit without much work and still keep everything cool. Many people do no mods at all on the support. If you take good measurements before buying a radiator, you'll probably be ok there.
