6500 is a good price, but way outta league for a truck.

I think your factory crank should be good for 450-500 hp.

Pistons and rods are a necessity. What brand is up to you.

After reading all of these posts, my recommendation goes as follows.

Since you want to have boost, get the motor built with forged components, consider an overbore .020, or .030. That increase in...

I think all 5.4 iron blocks are more or less the same, save for possibly different mounting bosses for ps pumps, a.c. compressors etc.

I'd skip pulling the manifold cover off. It is easier to just cut the sound deadening out of the way and maneuver it in.
it will be a tight fit but it will go in.

While the engine is apart, you might consider a forged rotating assembly. The supercharged F150 Lightnings had a forged crank that is good for lots of power.
Not sure how much power/boost the...

I'd say there are no special concerns.

I'm not sure how the 6.2 will take to the intake. If I recall correctly, some intakes on 5.4 trucks would cause the MAF sensor to give false readings that a tune was needed to fix. I think this has...

I'd say generally anytime you increase the stress on an engine (gas, diesel, electric, steam whatever) via more power, the wear will go up.

It WILL wear out and something WILL break eventually.
