I can't see the point in trading it in for anything other than an 11+ as that is when they revamped it and introduced the aluminum block that took 115+ lbs off the front of the vehicle. 5.0 is of course not as "built" as a Shelby 5.4 internally, which is why some people pushing 580+ HP on a 5.0 I wonder how long they will last. I'd aim for an 11-12 though, but an 08-09-2010 would still of course destroy a 5.0, the '11 is where they made dramatic changes though.
