The differences between the standard Mark VII 5.0 and the 5.0 HO in the '85 LSC, were due to a different camshaft, larger injector, higher flow rate throttle body, and the ECM was tuned differently for those differences and dual exhaust (I think the 85 LSC's actually had tubular headers too).

In other words, you'll need to either build a race car or buy one. I don't mean to be Snarky but your car wasn't designed to be an HO. Major money involved.
