Default 4.6 vs 5.4 trition

according to my scan gauge 2 set to a 4.6 i got 255hp on the 5.4 got 260 both floored on same road. so start the debate which is better?
i get 21mpg avg my buddie gets 12 always makes fun of me for having a small motor but cant power wash under his hood with out things running rough i can powerwas it to a shine under the hood and all it does is steam a bit when it gets warm again.
another roumor ive heard if you dont tow anything or have massive tires having a bigger motor is a testostrone issue? true? haha

Doubt you have 255hp. Basically, the 5.4l has more hp and way more torque. Torque is the power you feel at take offs or pulling things. And yes, they are gas guzzlers. I also don't believe you average 21mpg. Sounds impossible.

i get 14mpg with my 5.4, my grandpa gets 16mpg with his 4.6. only 2mpg difference and the only time his gets over 45mph is when im driving it. and i can feel that there is a huge power difference between mine and his when towing and regular driving

Sorry, for some reason I was zoned out and was thinking 4.6/5.4 4x4 mileage since i have a 4x4. Then yes it could be possible with a 4.6l 2wd.
