Snow? And I'm freezing at 56 degrees at sun-up this morning. Must be one reason I moved from the north.

Good luck on this issue. Continue to keep us posted.

The water leak is very common on the 05's and 06's, a bit less on the 07's and virtually nonexistent from 08 on up.

Do your best to find the leak and then you'll need to try to clean up those SJB...

Using 91 octane on the stock 87 tune is a waste of money; no gain. A good custom tune & CAI on the 4.0 will net you about 15-20 RWHP over stock.

C'mon, Jim... I did a poll about 1-2 years ago. It was 75% (give or take 2 or 3) of the forum WAS tuned.

Wow, that could be a ton of things. First thing that comes to mind is the PCM is bad or the tune is corrupt. But that's just a guess at this point.

Re-install the stock coils. Aftermarket COPs have been rife with problems. Stock COPs are as good as they come and those aftermarket COPs that don't crap out only provide very minor gain on an FI'd...

Very nice. 370 RWHP is a tad above what I've typically seen on the 5.0 but after about 20k or so miles. Manual or auto?

If you don't have the $$ to go FI, then after the tune, you've pretty much shot your wad for the bigger bang mods. You can nickle and dime some RWHP with lighter wheels, aluminum DS, maybe...

+1 that the CAI & custom tune is the way to go. On the 4.6L, you can expect to add 15-25 RWHP, depending on a few variables. But the critical piece is who WRITES the tune. AM's and Brenspeed's...

Could be a number of things. I always start with the simple stuff: clean the TB, clean the MAF, run a tank or 2 of SeaFoam.

Read the OM. It spells it out. But a custom tune will gain more with 87 as well as higher octanes than the stock tune will.
