2008 Engine build date???

Hey guys. Just have a question for you. I was wondering how to tell when my engine was built. I am wondering this because I am looking at replacing my spark plugs and was hoping I got one of the lucky ones in 08. I also noticed my coil is a 8L3E.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I have BLACK 8L3E coils, 12mm plugs. Congratulations.

2008 engines with late style 12 mm spark plugs can be identified by coil engineering number 8L3E
2005-2008 engines with early style 16 mm "High Thread" design spark plugs can be identified by coil engineering number 3L3E part number
All 2009-2010 engines use 12 mm spark plugs

Mine also has the 7G 600 BB but the date is 06 - 18 - 08. Just found the sticker!!! Also pulled a coil off and it has the brown boots. So what kind of plugs would you recommend????

Nice. Last of the line.

No idea on plugs fella. Iam fitting a Roushcharger to mine and Roush said the stock plugs are good enough.

Sorry for the questions, but I skimmed through the spark plug thread on top, but I didn't see the torque settings for plugs for a 2008? Anybody have those???? Also the Gap, I believe the gap is .041

Thanks again for the help and info.
