5.4 swaps are overated, theres some torque to be picked up but the power differences are not worth the money differences.

MMR makes nice shortblocks but are way over priced. I built my shortblock for $2100 and it was 1000hp capable (to bad the MMR oil pump wasn't). If I had bought the same exact shortblock from MMR it would have cost me $3500 with shipping.

If you want a 5.4 to make any power you need to go 4v heads. The 2v heads are to small for the 4.6 even with FI.

and with 4v heads it gets pricy, honestly you'd probably be better off staying 4.6 2v or at even 4.6 4v, way more aftermarket for the 4.6.

yes, baring n20 boost is the best way to go fast on a 4.6 2v.


but boost isn't for everyone....i'm above the influence lol.

Also i should add, i think its a sticky, a put together your own supercharger kit for $1500, $1500 really isn't realistic but it has good guidelines to end up around $2000/$2500 with a blower set-up good for 400ishwhp give or take.
