Alrighty guys im stuck. no matter what i have to build and engine. my stock 4.6 has 133k on the clock and im not comfortable putting any type of power adder to it.

So.. do i re-build the 4.6 and put 03-04 heads and blower on it. or do i build a fully forged 5.4 with some decent cams and spray it?

Lets hear what you would do?

I do like the 5.4 idea because i thought about doing it myself. But when it comes down to it i think i would do the supercharged 4.6 with the 03-04 heads.

Ya there is on 5.4 in sioux falls which is like 90 miles from here but it is turbo'd and as soon as it spools up he has no traction he went like 11's at 147 lol.. i would do a progressive controller if i spray it

BOOORRRRING

Just a 5.4 with some cams will be a very expensive thing to do, and won't result in a lot of power. At least nothing that would compare to a 4.6 with a power adder. I think you should do the 4.6 s/c... Just forged internals with stock heads and cams you can put a ton of boost to it and be plenty fast.
