      yes this will work on your mustang 5.0. i have a msd 6t on my mustang gt. you will be better off instead of trying to think of were you wanna wire it into your car. msd makes a wiring harness that wires it drectly to your tfi ignition coil. the only thing you will have to do is find a good ground to gound the thick black wire. and the hot wire witch i would wire the hot to your ignition key that way it only runs the msd when the key is in the run position and not when it is sitting there with the key off and the car is parked.
