I hear Motorcraft is best for our cars, but i got a set of Bosch wires and at first thought they were crap until i realized it wasnt the wires causing my misfire, corrected the problem and i would recomend them now.
I tried the MSD wires several years back. Piles of crap. Lasted less than 9 months. I went to Autozone and the got the lifetime warranty ones (might be Bosch; can't remember), and they've been on for over 3 years with no problems.
Also, why the frowny face? You'll never own another car where changing the plugs is as easy as it is on the 4.6L engine. Should take less than an hour, even stopping to sip an adult beverage after each plug.
I don't know about the 4.6 being the easiest engine to change spark plugs on.My Dad's '74 Dodge Charger is pretty easy.Pop the hood and all you see is the bare basics for an engine.There's no computer,very few emissions junk,and everything is easy to get at,except the oil filter(and all us 4.6 guys know about that!lol)But any way,I'm just joking aound,the 4.6's are easy to change wires on!
yeah I ordered my FRPP wires from dan... they cost me 90 bux I believe with tax and shipping (damn them for being in charlotte) but I haven't had a problem yet. Of course they are only like 10K miles old But copper plugs and wires. Works wonders.

It has been quite a while since I have posted, mostly due to the fact that my motor exploded roughly 6 years ago. Since then the car has...
I've been screwing around with this all day. Short of removing the cam, is there any way to get to the lower head bolts on this car? My socket wrench (all 4 that I've tried) is obstructed by the shock tower. I had a hell of a time removing one of the valve cover bolts on the bottom, but...
Hey guys; I've been posting in a few threads talking about the various mods for our cars, and I thought I'd start a thread where we could pull a bunch or the info together, and link to the various Howto threads.
So, in our best free-for-all fashion, lets discuss the various mods, and kick...

This thread was about a 5.4L DOHC installation that another member was planning to develop as a kit for the Thunderbird. Due to the overwhelming bashing by Jerry's crew the kit was canceled.
Why do you ask this happened. The story...
I was talking with my father the other day about engines, he's trying to teach me the basics and how they work. He's doing a great job of explaining these things to me, but now I have a question for you guys based on things that he told me.
Our V8s produce roughly little over 200 horsepower...
