I recently bought an 82 5.0 and my next project is to desmog it. I know to get a dummy pulley for the pump but im not sure what else I may need. Can anyone give me any tips on things ill need?

Thanks!!

I'm not sure about the 82s but in my 92 LX with the factory heads I had to plug the egr ports. All I did was cut about a half inch of the tube that connects to the head, smashed the tube closed with some pliers and welded it shut. I've heard others threading the hole and putting a bolt in it. I prefer my way. I'm not familiar with the carbed cars so I'm not sure if this applies to you, but I thought it be something to look at just in case.

Remove the air pump,[ You don't need a dummy
pulley, you can use a smaller belt and re route it]
Get rid of the cats and replace them with off road
x pipe. The air injection ports on the heads need
to be plugged . The egr system can be left on.
