It depends on what setup you go for. There are 4 different kits available for a 5.4L using a Kenne Bell charger itself.

If you have 9k to spend i wouldn't be looking at a built engine or supercharged. By the time you get a decent air intake/twin throttle body, full exhaust, other bits and pieces and a tune.. most of the 9k will be spent.
It costs alot to tune a car because its not a simple task, it is more expensive than tuning a carb (and can't be done at home) but the results should be far better in the end.
