Question how do I make a 4.6L F150 faster???

I have a 2007 4.6L F150, and I was wondering what i could do to make my truck a little quicker, that is fairly cheap and easy. Just a few things I can do to make it faster.

Thanks

Whats your definition of cheap?

Exhaust
Custom tune
Intake
Gears
Electric Fans
U/D Pulleys

Heads
Cams

Turbocharger
(no supercharger for the '04+ 4.6s)

There is no supercharger that you can just put on without some custom modification.

STS has a remote mount turbo, or the only other option would be a custom under hood mount setup.

From what I got from that link is that the 4.6L supercharger in question is still not commercially produced?!

Allen Engineering has produced an 04+ supercharger but it is not yet available to the public. I have not read anything about it being sold commercially with in the next year. Maybe try emailing AE and see what they have to say.

why didnt you just buy a 5.4 to begin w/? seems like you want alot of power w/ a new truck i would just turbo. its not worth switchin to a 5.4 seeing you just bought the truck IMO.
