They utilize a crossover tube (plastic with O ring seals) that then feeds the heater core. Maybe with all the 98723978563489756 they spend on RnD they finally got it right. And your .35 cent per vehicle figure is millions for Ford.

    Oh and I STILL work for Ford.

    You are entilted to your opinion, however I take personal offense to when you make reference to 99% of coolant mods leaking or being made poorly. Have you ever held one of my coolant mods in your hand? You would know it is a quality piece. It is bolted to the back of the head and utilizes an O ring for sealing.And for the record we have never had ANY reports of a mod leaking. EVER.
    Also for the record- the time involved for the monetary return on the few products we sell is nothing. We do it because we are part of the Terminator community and we enjoy doing it. Nothing more. We all have day jobs, and we all own modified Terminators.
    Im not apologizing for this post.

    Why if the piston skirt was making a noise and then Ford replaced a head, the why wiould the noise disapper? Are piston routinely replaced along with a head swap on a 4V Terminator?

    Yes your post was a dumb read...............
    Ok, I apologize for the attitude here, I evidently was misinformed. But the attitude was well deserved from the other post you made, it just kind of bled over.
    Evidently there was some 04 Cobras with 9 threaded holes, and I applaud you for setting the record straight.

    Up until today, I too believed that the 9 plug heads were only released after Cobra production ceased.
    I stand corrected on that and thank you for taking the time to research it.

    Sorry for the bad info.

    Well I came up with the The number of turns head thread Test.

    Dan tested out the theory for me.
    Dan also adamantly stated the 04's have 9 threads and he was always right.

    Basically there is a seat in the head for the wider portion of the plugs just above the threads to stop on. This seat, notch, ledge, whatever you want to call it is in the same location in the 03/04 heads. What is different is the 03 head threads start at the bottom of the head and go up 4 threads then there is space between there and the seat.

    The 04 heads threads start at the same spot, but go up 9 threads much closer to the seat.

    So when you screw a plug in your are using the bottom 4 threads of the plug on an 03 head and the bottom 9 plug threads on an 04.
    Most plugs have 10-11 threads.

    So this is how to find out how many threads your head has.
    Make full 360 degree turns on the plug

    4-4.5 turns to remove or seat the plug on a 4 thread head

    8-8.5 turns to remove or seat the plug on a 9 thread head

    I think we can just end this thread the way it is.

    We have totally verified the issue for the cobra world to see and came up with an easy way to check the status of a set of heads.
