    Well the AC, alternator and new engine mount are done. Got the mount at AM and the holes were to far apart so had to mod it. Anyone else run into this. I was not happy especially after the rep treated me like I was stupid. I sure get tired of these young parts guys that know it all.
    Anyway next step is rocker covers. I have seen a few sets of gaskets for sale. Any suggestions on where to get them. Some didnt seem to have rings for the plugs? Anyone want to do my rear one? Lol.

    I was facing a seller too telling me that the ABS relay wasn't made for the SHO. :S Don't let them discourage you. :)

    I bought the valve cover gasket directly on Ford dealer but I realized too late that we can have them a little bit cheaper on e-bay.

    Plug well seals need to be buy apart (most of the time individual or by pack of 2). I bought them on e-bay because my Ford dealer sell them for 20$ each... 8$ is a good price.

    If you have part #, it will be easier to find them. (Beware that you can lost your mind searching Ford part #...)

    Valve cover gaskets :
    F6DZ-6584 (from Ford blue book)

    F6DZ-6584-BA (right one)
    F6DZ-6584-CA (left one)

    Spark plug well seals:
    F6DZ-6F048-AA
    F6DZ-6701-AB
    National 710444

    Googling the right number can help. I found this but I don't know this site.

    Just in case if you didn't found it already for your future repair (coming from the blue book) :
