The job is the same anyother COP mod motor. Be careful and take your time, cleanliness is very helpful as well. Remove the COPs, blow the holes out, remove the plugs. Install the new plugs, fill the new coil boots with dielectric grease and hook them back up.

I think I spend about 3 hours doing mine, torquing all of the bolts/screws back to spec. So far, I am pleased the Denso IR plugs I put in.

Crown Vics are a breeze compared to the trucks. The fuel rails shouldn't even be in the way on the car.

Well, I got her done. No problems at all, boots came right off and very little dirt as I have steam cleaned the motor a few times. Plugs were a little tight but not too much that I was going to break the plugs. So now we are good for another 100,000.
