Default Foxbody experts, need help decoding a VIN...

Helping a friend out looking to buy a foxbody.
The VIN is 1FACP40M9NF177434

I used this link http://www.mustanggt.org/vin.htm but I'm not 100% sure because of the 8th digit...Is this a true 5.0?

Thanks.

Thanks everyone. It's modded quite nice with a 5.0 and flat black paint job. Is it worth $4k even though its a 2.3 VIN?

Here's are some mods that I was told about:

Scat crank and rods
KB pistons
trickflow stage two ported gt40 heads
custom valve springs, pushrods and retainers
GT40 upper and lower
Mac Shorty Headers
offroad H and chamber race flows
Full Pro drag suspension
Built T5 and 8.8 king race bearings
Centerforce Stage 2 Clutch
Bullit Wheels

This was in a text mumbled together so sorry if I didn't "categorize" it right.
