Hello I'm new and need advice

I put a new trl. body on my truck and it said inside it 5.8 and my aircondson lines say 5.8. But my intake manifold says 5.0. So could someone tell me if i have a 302 or a 351.

And also is there any thing I can do for free to get more hp.

What is the 8th digit in your VIN? That is the engine code for your truck...that would allow us to better help you here.

Both these motors use the same TB anyway so it really doesn't matter. If your intake has 5.0 on top you have a 5.0... that intake doesn't even fit on a 5.8 the block is wider.

There are lots of threads here detailing what needs to happen to get more power from these engines, just read a while.
