Default newbee with a stock standard cab 2007 XLT 4x4 automatic

Greetings gents, my truck is slow and boring(3l engine). I would like to add some muscle. Thinking of a 302 engine and conversion to a standard trans. Need suggestions on appropriate forums and advice about my options.
Thanks

==================
Welcome from SE TN & fellow PA boy (left it in 78 when joined the USAF)!

You'll havta do some checkin on doin this since PA has yearly inspections.

Are you thinkin carb or EFI? I'm not up on the newer models 04up, but know its pretty much plug & play with some minor issues on the 98-03's as far as 5.0L AWD Explorer swaps, but definitely gonna require some more info on the manual trans part.

GL and enjoy FRF!
