I took the truck to the local ford dealer to get it fixed so I'd presume it got ford plugs

and ya , I wish I'd known about the plug blow out issue - I drove it for about a year thinkin I needed a new lifter or set of lifters

would have been nice to know about it sooner - I have a new set of lifters and a couple of new rockers that the cost of would have been better spent elsewhere

and I was thinkin the coils were the only problem .....

one other thing I've learned too , - bump the windows down just a tad from all the way up
not so that there's a gap at the top but just enough the glass isn't ramed into the weather strip at the top of the door
this helps get the window down on a cold morning when stopin at Timmie's

- should add mine's just an f150 - life without boost just sucks

Hi there - have not been in here for a long time had a very difficult time with my dad. He is in a home turning 95 he is not having fun nor is the family. Anyway never lost the desire for a lightning so found one have a down payment on it hope to get it home in 10 days or so. It is a 2004 silver with only 12 thousand Kms on it . Older chap has a folder with every piece of paperwork. It is # 30?? of the 3,781 for 04. Looking forward to spending some time with lightning guys maybe meet at a show if someone can tell me they might be. I am going to leave this stock it is so nice. Would like to speak with some lightning folks if you have phone numbers thank you tim

5.4 2 valve motors don't have the problem with the spark plugs getting stuck and breaking off
instead they blow the plugs outta the head
