OK, go trade for the 6l. Sorry, couldn't resist. But I'll be checking back on this thread for performance mods too. I have an '08 5.3l. It was a good upgrade in powewr at the time over an F150 V6. But now I'd like mo' power.

I have a feeling that the main answer to this one is going to be TUNE!

kinda along the same lines as timber74wolf... I would shave the heads, put larger valves, bore the cylinders alot, and then put like quadrouple turbos with 15-20 lbs of boost, then install a six speed tranny and put like 6.17 gears in the rear end. then maybe a tune too.
