ok so i got my exhaust leak fixed today......well.....yesterday now......anyway......so it drives fine to work and sounds way better than before..... then i go to leave and pop pop popopop........... so i check to make sure all wires are on nice and snug cause i had that problem once before. all fine, adjusted the tune to see if that would help......no timing light don't help, but it seemed fine when i test drove it around the parking lot. drove home and it was missing around 2000 rpm.........also little bit of a lifter rattle at 3/4 throttle only for a second. right now i'm running autolite plat. plugs factory specs. should i go w/ motorcraft copper plugs or stay w/ the autolite plats? and could the exaust leak i had have caused the plug(s) to foul out?

that kind of reminds me of when my distributor went on my 5.0 birdy.

the culprit is dr. side rear plug wire touching the manifold. cracked the wire and was grounding out.
