    So I have an 04 f150 xlt 2wd with the 4.6L... and i was wondering what would be my best bet... either to put a old detroit or 4bt in it? Im looking for better fuel economy while still getting more power than what I have right now... any suggestions?

    Go with the 4bt. A Detroit will smush your 2wd front end.

    You're gonna need heavier springs in the front.
