These might be a good upgrade if the screws back out of the head. They're from massivespeedsystem.com

Something to consider but, its not required. Its not that much of a challenge to get the bolt fitted correctly again as I just need to get a set of inside torx bits. Some high temp locktite and tada

well, its done but.....


2 issues came up that suck ass right now..

1. one cat bolt has to be drilled out by a shop now as I've grinded it as much as I can.

2. the oil dipstick holder didn't go back in properly. So, the question is! will the dipstick be fine with it not popping in and out like it did before. I put a new rubber gasket on the end of it and pushed it all the way down then tightened the bolt that holds it in place. I get a slight bit of play but, with a aggressive test drive it seems to be fine. The pressure from the oil is my concern over time

oh there is this little rubber piece that fits on the end of it(it was under the car in broken). I'll see what ford says later but, its held up pretty good with some aggressive driving in the wee hours of the morning to try and induce a leak. Seemed fine but, granted I also, dipped the stick in my RP bottle and made sure it was as tight to the base of the block as possible before I put the retaining nut.

I've never had a good day with ford bolts on the under carrage though
