Ya I'm not looking to spend that much. New can bearings even when my motor only has 115k on it?

You are wasting your money. Just swap your motor with a low mile 4.0 or rebuild yours. Keep it cheap and simple. You don't need anything bigger than a 4.0.
I may go to a 5.3 eventually but while rebuilding it why not spend $300 or so more to get a little more pep. It will be cheap and simple I'm not as cheap as you
