OK ... I couldn't get to the engine #, but firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8. Standard 5.0 as I figured. Vin is 2FABP79F4KX168089. labels under the hood read: 5.0-9Hm KFM.50.V5HPF4

Anyone know if a Ford dealership can give specs based on ViN? Or website etc.

Another thread says may be a roller cam block, (But not have roller lifters? just able to be put in?!?) and most likely plain vanilla guts. Still doesn't answer the piston question.
SO...IF it has different firing order than a HO, and it does have forged pistons, IS the crank different than the HO? I.E. can I add HO intake, cam, roller lifters, ECM etc to upgrade it to HO specs. May not be worth it, but the plans call for starting with a short block and building up the top end with a mild supercharger, cam, heads and intake pieces.
