    just picked up a 99 GT . this is my 1st mod motor, so im all new to this. the car has a little under 78,000 miles and is bone stock. also a 5 speed. just sort of curious if the PI 4.6 is as reliable as the 5.0. how many miles are on your car? any major issues or problems?

    i tried using the search function on this one but didnt have any luck. if i overlooked it, sorry in advance

    thanks :SNSign:

    51,500 on my 04 GT. I don't drive it much any more, but my 99 Explorer has 224,300 on it. I know it's not a mod motor, it's not even the SOHC 4.0. It's the crappy OHV 4.0, but who says American cars don't last!

I run her hard have run lots and lots of nitrous through it. have put many passes at the track on her and i change the oil every 3k with some good oil and a filter and she runs like a champ

    2000 GT, 120k. Runs like a champ.

    Only problems I've had was a dead battery and had to replace the IAC.

    Also have a squeeky TOB, but its common and not engine related.

    several of you guys have about the same or even more miles than mine and claim few to no problems...makes me feel better :)

    since mine is a 99, dont i have some sort of individual coil pack per cylinder? are those expensive to replace? just thinking of a future tune-up. runs great now but does seem to have a slight ( and i mean slight ) miss at idle, no hesitation at all under a load.

    carry on

    you have COPS not coil packs on your 99. you can get a set of 8 for 200.

    coil on plug ?

    ignore my ignorance, is that a good thing or bad thing compared to coilpacks? is there a suggestion when to replace them? are there any other ignition components that work with them?

    thanks

    You only replace them when they go bad. Almost 121k and mine are all still factory.
