You can modify a NON-H.O. 5.0 (302) throttle body to fit the single-port engine. But the intakes should be ported to support such a large TB (60mm)
96-97 factory exhaust manifolds are a "shorty header" design, worth about 5hp.
Mark VIII 8.8 rear differential is worth about 35lbs weight savings. No power increase, but power to weight ratio improves, which does make you faster.
Mark VIII rear lower control arms are made of aluminum and are worth about 10lbs each. Same Power/weight idea.
