Might be a waste of time but here are my thoughts feel free to poke holes. Have a 93 5.8 looking for more hp and torque by rebuilding doing maf conversion and getting better heads and intakes and a different cam. I will have to bring parts in from the US so the build will take time and want to be able to enjoy my truck during the build. So I am thinking of buying a 96 from Venezuela super cheap and rebuilding slowly then swapping into my truck later. What else should I buy from the chop shop? Engine and wiring harness there has to be more.

One thing to find out is if your 96 model over there has OBD2. That set up is considered undesirable. Obd1 is preferred which is 94-95 in your case

Instead of building a MAF system from old parts I recomend contacting a company and using one of the many kits available online. Might be more cost upfront but its less hours spent in the long run.

Yo El,
FYI;
Speed Density to Mass Air Conversion & Parts List with Cost in a 93 F150, 5.0, E4OD; "...For this article, I will be doing a 93 Ford F-150, 5.0, E4OD trans. Because they don't make a kit for this, I will be re-wiring the harness, and using a PCM and MAF out of a 95 f-150, 5.0, E4OD. If you have a truck with a non-electronic Trans, like the old AOD's, or C-6's, etc, you can use a MAF conversion kit..." Read More Source: by Mike C at EEC Performance

Speed Density to Mass Air Conversion for Bronco & F 150; "...To convert SD trucks with E4OD/AODE transmissions to MAF, some people use the CA 5.8 MAF/E4OD (F5TF-12A650-BYA). Mike Wesley says he uses the F5TF-12A650-HB (95 CA 5.0 MAF/E4OD) on a 750+ HP daily driver 415 stroker Lightning with a Vortech S trim. It runs open loop, has been reprogrammed, drives like stock, gets 17 MPG and will run low 10’s at 130+ in the 1/4 mile and A/C and cruise work great. Both of these EEC’s are set to use 4.10 gears. If a smaller ratio is used, say 3.55, you could use the F5TF-12A650-GB. There are probably 15-20 EEC’s available to convert a SD (later model) to MAF (some of these may compromise the ability to stay emissions legal). If you have an early SD truck with AOD, re-wire to the Mustang EEC (Ford MotorSport sells this kit). You’ll have to move/add quite a few wires, and you might not like the results if you’re not able to re-calibrate the EEC (like the Pro-M ’low cost’ kit, Kenne Bell, LCA and Downs Ford come pre-re-calibrated). The engine shuts down at 85 MPH, shifting is fairly sloppy and too early (at least on a Lightning). All Ford EECs shift poorly -- except for the Lightning, which is only slightly firmer. To use the Mustang EEC on a truck with an E4OD/AODE, you would need to run two EECs in parallel. The Mustang EEC runs the engine, the existing truck EEC controls the trans. Pro-M sells a kit like this..." READ MUCH MORE Source: by Tom C

OBD2 is a one year only thing and from what I know less tuneable. I believe there was something about more O2 sensors and crank sensors that were one year only. I think they're just more difficult to get parts for and less supported overall
