Can I put a 2010 5.4 motor into a 2000 f150 body?


Asked by GuruSCLWL Apr 18, 2020 at 10:55 PM about the 2000 Ford F-150 XLT Extended Cab LB

Question type: Car Customization

I have a 2000 f150 5.4.  My dad has a 2010 5.4 but his
engine has way more power. My truck just doesnt have that
excitement of a v8.  Is it possible to put a 2010 motor in a
2000 f150.  Or is there a motor that'll put out more power or
equal to a 2010.  I just wanna be able to give it gas and feel
it accelerate. I have to mat it to the ground to get any real
power out of it.

Not an easy swap. These are two different engines.


It sounds like your 5.4 isn't running right and performing like a 5.4 should. Maybe all you need is to turn it up, or make some repairs. If your engine is running properly, you might be able to modify it to run more powerfully by making some changes, like adding a turbo or super charger. These modifications wouldn't be nearly as expensive as an entire new engine with all the risks of incompatibility with your truck.
