ok i have a 2v 4.6 planning on swapping for a 2v 5.4 so do i just take the 4.6 alternator and put it on the 5.4? whats with the fuel rail problem? do i just put the 4.6 fuel rails on? and is the timing cover really a big deal if i get a 5.4 with all the other accessories the belt would just run around the pullys different wouldnt it?

google hps 5.4 intake... it costs $695 plus shipping. the plates are like $300 but u gain about 20hp and 20tq if u go with the hps intake over the plates so not really worth it.
