5.4L swap or supercharge my 4.0 sohc?
I have access to a 5.4l dohc engine out a 1997 expedition.. Over 200k kms on the engine and tranny but its still an option. What would be the benefits of this engine swapped in instead of supercharging? There can't be too much more of a power gain if at all.. Also, I'd need the tranny too out the expedition right? And what else would I need? Cost factor for install? I'm very new to this just looking to see what the best route is.. Supercharge my 4.0 is probably the best bet, and cheaper? And is it bolt on?
Pros and cons of each? And those who have supercharged theirs how do you like the power gain? Will my stock parts all hold up with the sc kit or what else would I need to buy? I already have a pretty heavy modified engine in it now.. Help would be great! I'd search but I'm on my blackberry so its hard.. Thx guys!
