What is the difference between a GT 5.0 and GT 5.0 HO ?

Sorry for the newbie question. I just bought a 94 Mustang GT. The engine says 5.0L HO. What does the H.O. stand for? I have been told that it means High Output. What is the horsepower on this engine? Is this the Standard 215 hp? Were all 5.0's H.O.?
Thanks

High Output and the HP is around 220 and no not all 5.0's were H.O's the NON H.O's came in trucks and crown vics and cars like that, the only difference between an HO and a NON HO is the HO has a stock 351w cam

HO has better intermals, truck motors have some HEAVY pistons, and theres a few other differences.

If by 351w cam you mean firing order?

Thanks Turbo LX. That was exactly what I have been scouring the internet to find out. One follow up question. Did all of the GT's of the era come with the 5.0 H.O.? The guy that sold it to me was trying to hype up the H.O. as if someone had dropped the Cobra engine in it or something.

Thanks for all of your help guys.
I have another newbie question. One of the basic mods for these cars is to install an H-Pipe exhaust. This has already be done for me. What are the performance gains from this mod, is there anything I should check to make sure it was done correctly or to get more power etc? What would be your next mod on this car? I am thinking cold air intake?
