Get rid of that black plastic CAC tube while you're in there.

The '05 Ex does not have the STC issue on the HPOP as the motor is an '04 carryover.

That's not true 100% of the time. My 05 has a yellow 2005 sticker on the right valve cover and has had the STC fitting update.

The Ford kit that includes the metal duct and the boots is 6c3z-6c640-aa, if you aren't worried about OEM boots.

Ya I just replaced the STC fitting, it had the quick disconnect baddie on there. My excursion was made in the last week of production. Sept 2005.

I got worried

I was worried for a second, I just had a BPD EGR cooler and updated oil cooler put in and the shop told me that I had the old STC fitting and that they replaced it. After reading this thread I thought I had got ripped off and lied to but it sounds like some '05 Exs have the bad STCs on them? If not then I am wondering what else they said they did and in fact did not do......:dunno:

I can tell you that my X rolled off assembly the last week of Sept 2005 and production of them ended that month. So if I had the old STC it is most likely a good portion of the 2005s had them.

I know how you feel though, you can't trust 99% of the shops out there.
