Let's not forget the spark plug issues of the 2V & 3V. The 2V heads have limited threads - be sure to use a torque wrench and not "guttentight". I replaced mine at 130k miles when the engine started running a little rough. I also replaced the coil-over-plug boots. It still has a slight stumble at low load around 1500 rpm. Kinda weird, actually.

The 3V plugs like to carbon up and stick, breaking the porcelain from the metal with the plug dropping into the cylinder (the plug is a very strange design). There's a kit to remove the dropped plug but it's expensive (relative term). Still better than pulling the head off. A buddy mechanic likes to hit the 3V plugs with short bursts of an impact wrench.

Best,

As has been said the V-10 spitting the plugs was fixed in 03 (late 02 on my late build Excursion). so basically 02-current 2 valve V-10`s dont have the issue. the early 3 valve Tritons had the plug breaking problem. again that was fixed in 2010 with a new design plug.

I have owned both the 2 valve V10 with the 4r100 and the 3 valve with the 5r110. Hands down choose the 3 valve with the 5r110. It has much better gearing for the hills along with take off power.
