Wish I could help ya, but mine was a family connection. They did it as a favor.

Some guys from here just flat out ask the dealer. It is usually a lot easier if you are having problems or sympoms of a problem. Most dealers won't do them, just to do them. For instance, even with my connection, I still had to wait for symptoms.

I need mine done too. I have 86,XXX miles now and don't want any problems after the warranty. I have a friend that will do mine on warranty in Miami, but that is a DRIVE. A serious drive. Guess I will have to bite the bullet and do it regardless....

*Also, what is the STC fitting? I was told mine needed that done.. Sorry to hijack..

Part of the HPOP, get it done if they are doing it under warranty. Ford released a new modified "improvement". Mine had to be replaced (just this week @ 40,000mi) along with some other connectors. They went out causing my truck to die on the road (loss ICP) and a no-start situation.

undo the valve covers and loosen some head bolts. when you lift the heads, then go get it fixed. hehee

NOTE: This is a suggestion...not that I would do it if my truck was under warranty.......

Most all these dealers are being watched under the careful eye of FOMOCO. I think they are getting smart on these mods. Can you imagine the warranty cost they have absorbed

Probably someday yes in all likelyhood. Whether that's at 50k or 250k miles who knows?

nobody can give you a definate answer unfortunately, the old saying applies "if you want to play, you've got to be willing to pay".
