F150 5.0L build-up

Currently I'm driving a 95 F150 5.0L with the Mazda 4spd+OD M.T., Dana44 front, Ford9 9" fear, and NP205 diff. It's basically stock, with a K&N filtercharger, long-travel front susp. w/ leveling blocks, riding on BFG33x10.50s.

I want to keep it naturally aspirated, but it's just a bit under-powered. Does anyone know the power gain/loss if I swapped the mustang intake/throttle for the F150? or why the truck has 2 butterflies instead of 1?

I plan on re-gearing at some point, but the truck also has decent highway usage, and it already is only getting 15mpg on the highway as it is.

Was considering an engine swap to the 351 once I ran out of options (or when the 302 dies), but am curious what other V8s could be swapped.
