2004 standpipes and dummy plugs

I have a 2004 build date of 2/2004 I am getting ready to do arps, oil cooler, head gaskets, and just about everything that I have read to change along the way. My question is, since my truck is an early 2004 build do I need to get the updated standpipes and dummy plugs? From the reading I have done I am thinking that the early ones did not have the same problems as the late 2004's and on. Any info would be appreciated

if you have a wavy rail you should still get the new style standpipes. they have updated check valves and d-rings

dummy plugs probably aren't necessary on a 04

not all early 04s (built in 03) are the straight rail design

if you have an ICP sensor on the right valvecover you have a wavy rail

04 dummy plugs are a 1/2 drive plug where as the 05-07 dummy plugs that tend to go bad are a 10mm hex drive

confused yet?

The OP might. But I'm not. Yes, I agree that only the lower d-ring on the dummy rail plugs tend to deteriorate on the ones that used the 10mm allen head plug as opposed the ones on late-2004 and early-2005 engines that used the 1/2" square drive style plugs.

Ok so I have a wavy rail with the good plugs minus the lower d-ring. And I do need the updated standpipes. I know I will find out for sure when I get in there but I want to make sure I have all the parts before I start. Thanks guys for the info.

And yeah Im a contractor not a ford master tech so im sure that I am more confused that you lol. But I have done enough reading to figure most out and I have a good buddy that is a diesel tech so Im sure I will make it through the process. I just wanted some second opinions on things. Like I said thanks for the good info guys.
