Ended up not getting it. He wasn't gonna give enough on top of his truck. It was a 04 with 166k

The 3 valve 5.4 is a great little motor. I just bought an 06 Expedition a couple weeks ago, it's got some decent power. I need to order some tunes from Bill for it. It's almost as fun to drive as the HD

Ill say 8/10 for a moderately inclined person ...but can be fatal to the 3v if not done properly...

You know that ticking sound a 5.3 Chevy motor makes at idle? Its normal for the gm's

That sound from a 3v 5.4 usually denotes failing cam phasers.

As for the plug issues on 06 & earlier models...it can turn into a 1000$ plug job @ the dealer if 6 or 8 break off

The Lisle broken spark plug remover works great to get those out. I broke off 5 one time, used the tool got em all out like a champ.

Just my two cents. :D

Coolant filter is sold. Fantom do you still want the tuner ? I ended up getting the truck. I'm gonna fix the cam phasers and do the lockouts.
