honestly these days it's probably six in one and six in the other to just a matter of what you prefer. just don't buy a Nissan cuz they won't stand behind their repairs for warranty.

any of the ls series motors 4.8/5.3/6.0 really response to high flow exhaust, meaning long tube headers (not the shortys), cold air/high flow intake, and a good tune. i've been a gm tech for 16 years now and have done many performance up grades to vettes,f-bodies the 2004 and newer gto's and have seen 40 rwhp increase with these mod's. dyno tuning the is the way to go hand held tuners can be used but not with the same results, every car and truck are different and you have to take in account location,alt,humidity and air density. you could also change your rockerarm ratio for the stock 1.6 to 1.72 or the 1.8's that would be like changing your cam profile with out opening up the motor.

I tried a westers custom tune once. I was AMAZED at the way the 6.0 ran with a custom tune.

Some folks have great luck with them, but while my tune made the 6.0 run like a champ, it created shift issues and clatter... 4 tunes and 5 meetings later, the westers rep fried my ecm and I had to tow the truck to the dealer...... I haven't messed with a tuner since

He didn't ask how to have ignition switches that burn, he wants more power from his truck.

There's a reason the Explorer is called 'Exploder', ya know.
