Well.. from what I know my EFI Speed Density System's throttle body is on the drivers side. I'd like to replace it with a larger one but then again they only sell parts for the Mass air system, unless it's universal but I doubt it because well.. its flipped. I want to put on an aftermarket HO Intake but I'm sure that would require ordering all new linkages from the Stang because mine wouldn't be long enough being that it's not made for the Mass sustem. The bolt pattern is different on the upper manifold to the bottom one unlike the HO pattern. I'm pretty sure my 5.0 does not have a roller cam, E7 heads, trw pistons and/or any of that fansty stuff that brings the HO 75 hp up from my 150 hp in a 4,575lb car, mind you that. Yeah that's all she has. But the 270lbs of torque gives it a nice pull I'd say.. I was thinking about removing the air conditioner.. Is there any special way to do so? Another when I was trying out the new plug wires I got I heard a light popping sound and then the front window started to fog. I looked around but thats all I could find was light fluid smoking around the cat on the passener side underneath from some kind of exhaust return.?. I might be wrong on that. But ya I'm not sure why it fogs up even if it defrosts for 15 min in heat, it wasn't that cold out. Thanks for the information on the two motors I've gotten a better understanding of the differences. Two more questions by the way.
1. Is it easy to find a better cam for my non-HO and how much would that cost to get done roughly..or how hard to do myself?
2. I'm temperarily running the Linoln on two cats and strait pipes with no mufflers to the axle(almost), is this bad for the motor?

Your exhaust system won't hurt the motor, but it might get costly if it's real loud. That Crane 364211 cam is $166 at Summit. It is designed to be used with the stock EFI computer without confusing it. Anderson Ford sells a "tappet tool" set which elevates the lifters through the pushrod holes so you don't have to remove the intake manifold for a cam change on a roller-cam motor. (the 150hp 270lb/ft 5.0 engine has a roller cam)

The fog on the windshield may mean that your heater core is leaking.

Removing the A/C will do little in the way of performance improvement. The computer cuts the compressor off at wide-open-throttle anyway, and trying to find a belt the proper length might be quite frustrating. I tried it when my compressor & clutch locked up, and there was no belt that would fit.
