If you dont wanna do the swap, then gearing will net you the best/most power. If you dont wanna do that...then IDK
KBR97 is right but if you feel like put the cash into that 4.0 go for it personally I'm going the budget minded Chevy small block swap

I'm only messing with you 50 extra horsepower out of the 4.0 is possible but requires deep pockets, patience and work. You could gear it and get a lot more response to the wheels. There are superchargers for it I believe I saw one online it was a kennebell. And they claimed you could have 315 ftlbs of torque and 305hp. But thats a few grand right there not including the work(labor if you pay someone to do it) and the cost of having the computer tuned for it. You could also stroke it out. A common one is a poor mans stroker 4.6L taking the 4.2's crank and rods. They can be stroked and slightly bored to a 5.0L but thats pushing it. Personally I'm kind of curious as to what the results may be if you stroke a 4.0 to a 4.6 with all forged internals get an aluminum head port it with a 3 angle valve job titanium valves throw the kennebell supercharger on it and have it tuned in. In theory it would be a wild motor but the question is could the block take the abuse.

Vaultzz I don't know about 50 but removing the mechanical cooling fan and replacing it with an electric fan will get you a little more HP
