I have a 2007 F150 Supercrew with the 5.4L engine and 39k on the clock.

It has a slight vibration that's worst at 1800-2000 RPM. The vibration is most evident when spun unloaded and out of gear,...

Check and make sure the switch and relays are getting power to the pump and valve. That's a lot easier and faster to check than pulling a fuel pump.

It would be easier to just replace the valve seals. It can be done without removing the heads.

Before I went throwing cats and other stuff at it, I'd take a loooooong look at some good headers. You'll get a better return on your investment. Then turn it over to Scott and let him have a go at...

No





Other than scraping the rust off and repainting them often, no. And it would be cheaper in the long run to have them ceramic coated anyway.

Given the looks of the water passages in the first pics, I'd suggest using distilled water in your cooling system next time. It's less than 70 cents a gallon at Wally World.

Stickies gone?

What happened to the stickies at the top of the page? Did they just go away, or have they been gone a while and I'm just not very observant?

The B heads are the Kaase redesign. On the 521 stroker from the FRPP catalog the new heads were good for about a 50 HP increase.
