Power with engine

Looking on here people are saying the 4.6 can only handle around 450hp. I'd like to get around the 600 range with a supercharger. In order for my engine to handle that what all would have to be done? Or would it be cheaper to do a coyote swap and supercharge it? Also a side question if I were to get the ford racing intake manifold and then buy a supercharger does that get rid of the intake manifold or would that stay on the car?

For the price of a forged motor and supercharger you can swap in a coyote. That's what I would do

Depends on what kind of a supercharger you get as far as the manifold is concerned. But fiscally swapping the coyote is a better choice

I think since I've almost bought all bolt ons I'm just going to finish putting them on run it for awhile and save up for the swap.

What's the average cost of a coyote swap?

It's all about the Smiles Per Gallon

I know for the engine it's around 6,000 as far as anything else you'd need I'm not sure.

Its getting cheaper. A lot of parts you can find used. Especially the motor, those are becoming more and more common nowadays. Then there are the parts and such like the control pack, the exhaust, not sure about your car but with my 01 i would need an accessory drive kit to maintain my hydraulic steering set up (05+ uses electric steering i believe, so not sure what you would have to change, if anything). Transmission should bolt up since the bolt pattern is the same for all mod motors. Might need a Tubular K member.

It should be easier in a 05-09 than it should in the 01. Excluding the engine you are looking at around $4k in parts i believe.

Ok then the kit will be needed to keep the hydraulic set up.

Power with engine

Take a look a Ford Racing's stroker blocks. I just saw that they now have a new 5.3l built off of the 4.6l block. They already have the 5.0l stroker block which was over 450hp NA with their 3v heads and intake. In my opinion a much more expensive route, but it is a much better foundation to build up more power with.

You will be safe on the 4.6 up to 490 which is plenty fast if you set the rest of the car up right.
