Your signature says it all...."i'm so fussy i drive myself crazy sometimes."

What is probably worse for the car, is the fact that you drive it like a *****! You need to open it up every now and then and let the horses run wild!

Just put a big Band-Aid around your head, and you should be fine..

There is a thread on here, where the same question is asked for forced induction mustangs, and the replies are very positive! Can't seem to find the thread....

That's actually not a good thing. The threads should NEVER be greased on spark plugs. The proper anti-seize should be applied to the electrode shield ONLY.

As for the reliability of the 4.6 3V, I have 3 words: Can't kill it. (No one knows better than me, lol.)

My buddy was under my car recently and he commented that I didnt have a drip of oil anywhere under there, absolutely no leaks. 27k total miles 9k of those with a blower, over 250 passes down the quarter mile track. 5 trophies in two years why......because the car is so damn consistent because it was so well built.

Have no fear, drive the bitch and enjoy it.
