Default 4.0 to 5.4 Swap

Okay so, I have a 2010 4.0 mustang. I know, I know. Should've waited for the 2011, like everyone says, but whatever. Anyways, I was checking out some video's on YouTube, and I came across this video of a guy who'd swapped a 4.0 to a 5.4 in a 2007 mustang. I've been looking around for a complete list of parts/advice (or even if I should try this/ if it's worth it or not) I've heard pros and cons either way. So, if anyone has any opinions, or advice, lemme know.

How much are you willing to pump into your car?

Gonna have to start with a deep pocket if you want to make this build right. You'll have to beef up basically everything.

Your gonna need a motor, trans, rearend, custom made driveshaft, most likely custom motor mounts, and custom wiring harness. Its possible but your best bet is to find a wreck 10 GT and swap the 4.6 out of it and then supercharge it.

I going to do it in my car evenutally because its not worth anything much to someone money wise, but the stories I have with that car. I might as well, do what I want with it
