Re: New Engine?

Not really sure, just open to any and all suggestions! I'd like a lot more power, but I don't want terrible MPG. Although I'm sure I'll have to sacrifice one of the two.

Are you planning on a weekend driver? If so then I'd stay fuel injected. Maybe an Aluminator swap or a 5.4? I've always dreamed of dropping a new Eco-boost motor in a new edge.

Re: New Engine?

It is a daily driver, so fuel injected was the plan

Take your motor out and put the trickflow heads cams and intake on it would be a pretty noticeable difference. Try to go with a more aggressive cam. If not that just kenne bell it.

That's my idea any brand names and stages for the cams and such?
