beard, not trying to get off topic but could you give me a link to some websites about building a 5.4? my buddy has a 5.4 2v and cant seem to find too many performance parts. it needs to be built to pull some 54 inch military tires...

im not building the motor. NicksterSVT is. I dont know of too many sites that are just flowing with good information. Best idea is to take it to someone that has done it before. That is what i did.

Well that was fun... Not

First off I dont want to argue about which engine is better or worse. This is a 5.4L swap. May not be the best wheeler or the best race truck, or the best whatever, lets face it, my truck isnt the best at everything and i am fine with that. What I like is its different, that is what i strive for and that is what i use it for.

I want to drive it to where ever beat the crap out of it and take it home. And do it all over again.

Some people run a 5.0, great! I have no problems with that at all. No need to argue over it, its a great engine, works well in 90% of the applications. I choose not to do it because others have it! Again I strive to be different. Sometimes its better most of the time different is worse. oh well.

Anyway back to the build!
