After the first drive, my initial impressions are that this combo works really well! Repeat the process using the full torque necessary. I used anti-seize on the studs, but I put some red locktight on the last few threads of the nut. Install the cylinder head bolts. The V10 has an ignition coil mounted on top of each spark plug. The pattern helps the new gasket sit correctly against the engine blocking leaks.

The only nice thing about the whole problem is that the area is easily assessible through the wheel opening. The fix is a change-up stud from Ford which is made of stainless steel with a copper plating to prevent corrosion in the aluminum head. I let it run for about 20 minutes and listened for exhaust leaks while it was getting up to temperature. Nothing has come loose so far! I disconnected it from the driver's side manifold 2 nuts , and from the rest of the exhaust system 3 nuts , and dropped it down out of the way.

Connect the vacuum hose, fuel hose and water hose. The torque spec is 23 ft-lbs but, for some of them, it was impossible to get a torque wrench on, so I tightened them best I could to match the ones I could torque. Thank you: Left side front cylinder head Cylinder head bolt torque sequence-3. I bought a set of headers off of Ebay and after trying to install them, called the manufacturer and was told they only fit 2 wheel drive V10's.
Some manifolds house different sensors and plugs, such as a check valve or exhaust plug. I just did this yesterday and today.
