motorcraft denso or ngk spark plugs only. gap spec is on the sticker under your hood. and theres no need for tsb's when tuning up the 5.4 2v, only the 5.4 3v. just remember to put dielectric grease inside the boots of each coil.

Coil On Plug, no plug wires.

take 4 small bolts off of fuel rails to lift up a bit as the rails are right above a few of the coils.

small 7mm bolts on each coil before able to pull coil pack up and off, don't quote me on 7mm though

Use about a 6" extension on top of a spark plug specific socket so it will lift the plug out once unthreaded.

may be a good idea to use a shop vac to suck out the dirt in all the injector and spark plug holes before reassembly, these motors have a bad tendency to collect dirt and grime in many areas. good luck and feel free to pm me for any quetions on the way. also a little dab of engine oil on the injector O-rings helps out alot when going back together.
and make sure all the orings stayed on the injector, if not dig the oring either out of the intake hole or fuel rail and put back on the injector or you'll play hell.
