my fathers hemi uses 16, and each one takes 10 minutes to get to, so its a full days job, pretty crazy how they expect you to do them yourself. but the engine is just so nice, guess its worth it
bosch platinums times 16, yea you add them up

i dont see how 10 is so cool, but its a nice sticker :thumbsup:

Wait a minute: a DIESEL truck with 10 sparkplugs? :confused: Is this an engine made by Elmer Fudd?

A Ford V10 gassser will have 10 spark plugs, but a Ford Powerstroke turbo diesel V8 will have 8 glow plugs, but no spark plugs.

Maybe it was a Ford V10 gas engine truck? Or it was a diesel, but the guy was so unhappy with his engine that he wished he had a V10 gasser instead. Note: Ford 6.0 liter powerstrokes are notorious for numerous problems.

That's really funny. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go replace the distributor cap on my 300D.

Well, you are talking FORD. Another meaning is For Other Retarded Drivers...

Maybe it was a real gasser that already sounded like a diesel... :eek::D
