I ordered a F-250 and changed it to a F-350 on 7/3.  They didn't start the
till 7/31.  Mine was built 9/12 delivered 9/29.  What is your priority code

means build
it whenever it works out for you.  I only order from dealers who give me a

Call me crazy, but I tried a set of those Splitfire sparkplugs in my 1989 F-150 with it's 4.9 liter inline six/ standard 5 speed overdrive tranny stock set up. I was amazed at the increase in power those plugs gave me. The truck always "pulled" well, even using cruddy gas- but with the Splitfire plugs, I did notice a lot more power! I seemed to do well with mileage too. Don't get me wrong, my six banger was no screamer by any means, but it did get up and go a lot quicker with those Splitfire plugs. They lasted longer than the warranty stated as well, and after three years of steady use, I retired those plugs and used a standard off the shelf Autolite/ Motorcraft plug set at tune up time, and I was back to having to "put my foot into it" to get the F-150 to get up and go as compared to the power I had experienced with those "fancy plugs" !
F.Y.I. only- I don't work for Splitfire, and am not paid to make this claim.

Well I got the final answer from ford lst night and they will pay for 50% of
the repairs on the crack for any ford truck out of warranty... I told him i
would think about it... I know thought of it and decided to start up a law
suit against ford.. its there fault and they only want half of the
responsiblility, forget that.. im not paying for faulty engineering.. i
don't want to think there implying it half my fault because i bought a ford
truck!!! well i would love some feed back on this... guys let me know, what
i should do???

Take Care..
