You wont love it when it comes time to change the spark plugs and wires in that thing. My dad has a Triton motor in his 2000 Ford and the book gives 8.5 hours of labor to change the things. That over an hour per plug. OUCH! I had to do it cause my dad, a mechanic for 50 years, did two cylinders and stormed off swearing. Thanks to rust it took me 10 hours to do.

and i would consider the boxer engine design to be far from the easiest design. i actually need a light sometimes. but yeah, hour tops on a bad day for the rex.

in his defense we only have 4 to swap....

NN- hell even if we did our plugs twice it wouldn't take more than 1 1/2 hours.

I heard mustangs were a pain in the butt to change also. I suppose I'll stick to Subaru for the sake of easy maint.

BTW nice truck, now you'll be just like Hank Hill
