Go for the 5.4 1 haven't seen a lot of those 2 rebuilding 1 of those has got to be very cheap and 3 drop 373 gears in and you will not be sorry if you do the 373 gears make sure they surface the flywheel correctly.

The 351W (5.8) will be an easier and less expensive engine for you to swap into your car.

The 5.8 creates more hp and mid range torque too correct? Because from what I've read the 5.4 also has probs making anything but large low end torque.

It all in how they are built. The 5.4 triton would make a lot more low end torque than top end power because it was built for a truck

My understanding is that unless its a 4V 5.4L it's not really worth the swap expense etc

Unless your.just worried about cool factor. But a high hp 5.8 can top that. ;)
A small block 427w is what I really want.. My $10k+ dream engine lol it can be built cheaper but not mine lol
