Rebuilding my 5.4L, need help on performance parts
On my 2000 F-150 5.4L 4x4, i'm going to have the motor rebuilt. As far as upgrading the motor i need your guys' help.
My goal is somewhere around 100HP/lb ft. over stock at the crank - so if it has 260 at the crank i would like to at least make 360 with NO power adders. Also, we have to remeber that this truck is used for a DD and towing a cargo trailor so i have to have good torque and reliability.
-As far as rebuilding goes, what old parts should be replaced with new?
-Can you replace the 2v heads with 3 or 4 valve heads?
-What about cams - i would defenitly want a little bit of "lope"
-Does anyone offer a good stroker kit - that would greatly help the TQ side.
-Long tube headers are already in the works, would i need different headers with 3v or 4v heads?
-Any other suggestions?
I need your guys' help, this project is going to start soon!
