I found the problem... I did not secure the BOV well enough and after last night's "spirited" driving I guess the thing worked it's way off the rubber and fell... I found it in the end of the driveway, I think it must have been dragging down the road for about a mile hanging on by the vacuum hose. Close call. That would probably have been one of the last thing's I looked for! Pulled the spark plugs and replaced with Motorcraft, set gap at .028 and it runs fine now!

Yeah same here!
Is there a machine shop you recommend around here? I've talked to several recently but am getting mixed input from many people on all shops. Just want to know I'm not getting ripped off and that they will do quality work.

I dealt with PBF a few years ago when I had a 5.0 and I was disappointed with their personal service. They can be very condecending.
Thats great 75Pinto! Yeah Bob, it is cool to have some fellows in the area. There is another 2.3t guy around here, I think he is in Tampa or Clearwater. I want to say his name is Denz, but I may be mistaken.
first 'get it running', bought it from charlie at evergreen and drove it home with intentions of working on it right away but that didnt happen. gonna be a DD first and then see how far i take with pimp and other parts
