well I think it would be alot cheaper to mod yourself some power vs buying a hemi and swapping it unless you get a really good deal on a hemi. I am not familiar with the 4.7..so I dont know how much help I can be, but as far as some mods that will add power I can list a few, I might mention also that some of them are more expensive then others. A higher ratio rockers will help, along with the big three, ported/polished heads, headers (long tube or short, either will add power), a gear swap will increase your off the line time (higher ratio, better torque multiplyer to my understanding), a custom tune to go along with the tuner, aluminum radiator=cooler temps, as well as efan, a lot of people run 180 degree t-stat, ported tb. Thats about all I can come up with at the moment, but a lot of that stuff can get pricey as it adds up. Just depends exactly how much power you wanna try to get.
