for the money go 5.0

The parts list is the same, since you didn't list what year you have I cant suggest anything beyond a concept.

A few have upgraded from the 4 to a 5. But be agvised, if you truck is newer than an 03, you may essentially make your truck illegal to drive in your state due to emissions

Just swap a 5.0. Much easier. More than enough power and plenty of support. I did it to my 04. Very simple. Check out my thread. Even easier on a 2000.
