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

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.

I agree with the STS turbo kit, they've been gaining popularity here recently

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.

ive got an 08 4.6L and was looking at the sts turbo. how much would a swap for a 5.4L cost me. for that matter how much would it cost to have one buil with the options i want, i.e. bigger cam and heads.

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.
