I Need More Power!!!
Okay, so I ditched the Novi route. I decided I want to do a 5.4 2V swap instead. I priced a 5.4 from a F150 with 96k miles at the local Pick-n-Pull, going to run about $550 for everything needed from the donor truck. A local chop with do a total rebuild for $600. So in total that's a little over 1k for the shortblock. I know I will need a HPS Intake and PI heads. I am looking at picking up a set of Stage I PI heads from MMR to compliment the intake and shortblock. The questions I have are: Could I run a set of BBK shortys without clearance issues? I picked up a set on CL in mint condition for $70 and I really would like to use them if I can. Also, if I used the adapter plates, could I run a 2.1 KB on top of the 5.4? What about a P1SC? Would I have to fab one from a 4.6 kit or could I just used the whole kit with no fab? How much power can a 2V 5.4 handle? Reps given for responses.
