Built 5.4L Crate Engine?

Does anyone know of any trusted companies out there that sell a ready to go long block BUILT 5.4L crate engine? Right now I'm just kicking around the idea of just buying one and swapping all the accessory drive and such and dropping it in, rather than pulling mine and the truck be out of commission for quite some time. What I have in mind is something that all ready has all the upgrades done to it, such as forged crank, pistons, rods, cams, port and polish heads, maybe a stroker, ready for a high psi supercharger..... (just some ideas coming to mind)...

What kind of price would I be looking at?

Deep Pockets?? Just a quick thought -



* 550 hp @ 6200 RPM, 510 lb-ft of torque @ 4250 RPM
* Original equipment in the 2011 Mustang SVT
* Aluminum block with Plasma Transferred Wire Arc (PTWA) cylinder liner coating
* Perfect crate engine for a high-end street rod or Mustang "retro-mod" project.
* Fully dressed including accessories and supercharger
* Does not include vehicle wiring or Powertrain Control Module
* Works with M-6017-54SC controls pack

Ya, those are some deeeeep pockets! $21k for that bad boy! I've been kicking around the idea of doing a hefty upgrade to my truck rather than trade-in for new truck. Wanted to see what was out there and compare upgrade vs trade-in... What you you guys recommend for upgrades? Do I really need all forged parts in the bottom end? I know head work is worth it's weight in gold, so that would be a "have to do" upgrade. A supercharger will be a required upgrade as well (or turbo maybe???)

What is your power goal?

That will depend on what you need.
