Exclamation 4.7 rebuild = big money!!

Im bout to rebuild my 4.7 and to be honest i wish i woulda took a match to it before i pulled it out!! oh well, too late now... i've only been able to find parts on ebay (knock off shit). and air ram (BIG BIG money) any other options?. if not imma build it the way i want it!!! id like to put the ross pistons in it (not sure which ratio to go with?), 212 or 218 cams, sct tuner, headers, valve springs and solid lash adjusters. imma try to re use the stock rods (if they will hold up to the compression).? i will install all new girdle bolts (arp or stock?) stall? balancer? injectors? the truck will be driven on the street everyday so i dont want to overdue it. mpg aint the best to begin with so that dont matter but when i plant my right foot down and try to push the gas pedel into the radiator i want to be able to notice the difference.. this motor stock is basically a little "stroker" motor. but my truck is a 4 door 4x4 and i dont want to spend A LOT of money to build this engine if its not goin to pay off... (dont want it to be like puttin a 5 hp go kart engine in a 69 camero..) is the truck too big???? would it benefit me enough to build this?? or would i be better off fixin it back stock and drivin it??? any help would be appreciated..

RamItAll will become famous soon enough

you could deff push some horse and get power. air ram is actually doing a build on a 4.7 right now

whatever you do to it, if done right, will be significantly better over our crappy stock 4.7's currently getting High Ouput heads and cams in mine. then i think im going to sell and buy a quad cab hemi
