bench building a 90's T-bird before buying

I'm looking at laying my hands on a 94-97 t-bird for my next project, I worked on one in my shop class some time ago and I couldn't believe how good it looked under the hood, 4.6 liter v8, 4 speed AOD transmission, independent rear suspension and a surprising amount of wiggle room for engine work too. I'm wondering if I could bounce some ideas off you guys before I get in over my head.

I'll be buying this car for my daily driver but I'd also like to upgrade the suspension, cooling system, and drivetrain and then rebuild the motor for the ultimate goal of supercharging the engine. It's the same 4.6 liter the mustang came with so i don't see why supercharging would be a problem, but if you guys can think of some possible pitfalls or helpful ideas along the way I'd be grateful to hear them. (by the way I'm a californian so lets not go overboard with things that might not be 50-state smog legal)
