Normal ecoboost blow-by.
That’s what I picked up the other day, they are all gapped and ready to go but I have just been busy with work. I did have to talk the Ford parts guy down on price, they wanted $11 a plug and I got him to drop it to $8. He did admit they pay $6.06 a plug for them. lol
Good for you. Thankfully spark plug changes are very quick and easy on the f150 ecoboost.
< $7.50 on amazon
Got them changed and you could tell by the sound it’s running better, and by the test drive it’s really running better. It’s real smooth and Chrisp. I had forgotten I dumped a bottle of Lucas Octane booster in and think the plugs really didn’t like it.
A question for everyone not just the Whipple stage 1 people. When go through the gears and it gets up 4500rpms + do you hear a sort of ticking noise? I think it’s the Wastegates but wasn’t sure. Also in Manuel mode if you bring it up to 4000-5500 then don’t shift and just lift off the gas is that noise the wastegates making that noise.
300 miles and this is what the plugs looked like.
I hear that ticking around 60mph or so, WOT. Almost sounds like knocking but it isn't.

I get the same thing, sometimes accelerating in low speeds there's a rattle that almost sounds like knocking. Probably the wastegate. It's a Ford, so par for the course I guess.
Did you figure out which tune you have on your truck yet?
Well on my way to get breakfast this cold morning I hadn’t gone past 1/4 throttle and when I pushed it to 1/3 throttle it threw a wrench code P130D. Searching the Internet it says Knock issues but the ford Pass app says different.
I did search the forum for that code and got no results, anyone have any ideas? Also I was wondering if it’s true we can’t flash back to stock?
Edit: I cleared the code and drove around a bit and it came back on and cleared it again, If it comes on again i will take it to the dealer. I did however at low speeds under acceleration hear a ticking noise which sounded like it was coming from the axle but doesn't do it all the time. I have this nagging feeling I am gonna be " that guy" that has all the issues.SMH
I also Decided to do a data capture so see what the motor is doing and does anyone know what the Knock numbers mean?? With the other plugs it only went up to .9-1.5 but this morning it was showing 5.9?
Is it still the same tank of gas that you put octane booster in?
