Got me a 4.7, and it certainly is enough for me! I'm looking forward to the f5 tuner on the Christmas list to give her a little more pull and some more agressive shifts, but she's definitely haulin the mail just fine. Especially with that nifty manumatic system, pretty fun to mess around with on the highway. Yee haw!

2008 4.7L Sport, blacked out.
Mods: Rough Country 2" lift, Bilstein 5100 rear shocks, rear sway bar delete

I upgraded mine a bit by adding the AFE Magnum Force Stage 2 Intake System with Pro 5R Filter, the AFE MACH Force-Xp 3" Stainless Steel Cat-Back Exhaust System and the Superchips (3874) F5 Flashpaq Tuner with the 93 Octane Performance Tune, which I keep loaded during normal driving.

As a result, I believe I'm pushing around 330HP and I'm completely satisfied with how Big Blue performs.
Holy crap, #4.7goals right there!

Lol I am legit screenshotting that post lol. How much did the exhaust run ya, if you don't mind telling? Having a hard time finding one for mine, other than a pretty boring magnaflow.

Around $600.00 and change with shipping, but it was money well spent.

What a difference from the factory exhaust, gives the engine an awesome sound - even at idle.

Here's a link if you're interested;

2006 4.7, given options (which I didn't have) I would have liked the 5.7 or a 2008 4.7.
