Is that even a real question? If you have the resources, do the 5.4...People go with the 5.0 cause its cheap and easy (well, for an engine swap)

You guys do realize he is talking about the new 2011 5.0, not the old one that was in the Explorers.

The only problem with the 5.4 would possibly be the shear width of the engine. One other choice that I would consider would be the 4.6 dohc that was in the 03 & 04 cobras. I had an 03 convertible stock with only a catback exhaust. It made 427/400 without even a tune. I know people running as much as 800 hp and the internals are still stock. I like the new 5.0, but given the choice, I would still like to have my cobra back. My lightning makes 366/442 stock, but the lightning shortblocks are not as strong as the dohc engines. They start to fail just above 450 rwhp.

K wow!!lmao i was thinking about putting it in a 97 ranger. so from what i assume the 5.4L supercharged is better, but does anyone know if there are conversion kits for it? its a hard choice because i like the 5.4L supercharged, but the 5.0L aluminum is light, and 4.6L sohc or 4.6L supercharged from the cobra is a good setup too?? idk....

I am partial to the 4.6 dohc out of the cobra. Those are lighter that the 5.4 and has more potential than just about any engine that for has put out in the last few years.
When the time comes for a heart transplant for my 96 ranger, I will be going a simpler route. Forged 331 with all good internals. Set up for a 200 shot of nitrous
