I can help with the 08 intake adapters that you will need.

There are no headers for the 2008+ 4.7L. The heads are different, I don't believe the exhaust manifolds are interchangeable. It's a good amount of work. The trans will bolt up, but you will need to swap a lot of parts, and the wiring/programming is probably the most difficult aspect. You would almost certainly need to swap the entire pcm and harness.
