Default difference between 5.0 and 5.0 HO

Got a sweet deal on an 88 cougar with a fi 5.0 in it. What is the difference from it and the mustang 5.0 HO? How hard would it be to swap the fuel injection into my brothers 89 2.3 coupe? Should I use a HO intake? Is the wireing different? I have heard of useing a truck intake with a stock intake to make a few more ponies. Would the cougar engine have a roller cam? If so, how big compared to stock HO cam? Thanks for the replies and sorry for the long post.

The differance between the 5.0 and the 50 HO is that the HO motor has rollerized internals and cam while the other does not. Some parts will say for use w/ either a 302 or 302HO motor. SO u cant use a roller cam in a non roller block. Using the lower truck intake with the stock upper does offer more flow but its the top piece of teh intake that is also resrictive, thats why people that do this often have thier stock uppers ported.

HO motors also have a different firing order, they share the 351w firing order

Can a person install a HO roller cam in a non roller cam 5.0 block? If I bought a HO intake, will it work with my wireing harness?

HO = Roller, so if its not HO then anything roller (besides roller rockers) cant be used internaly. The intake however should work because it is the engines internals but im not sure about the wiring harness.. I would assume so because the displacement and block size are the same...
