    How do i tell how many valves i have? I read somewhere that 2004 was the transition year - so some have 3 valves. Anybody know? Thanks in advance for any input.

    IS your truck the new body style? If its the new body style it will have 3v i'm not sure if they put the new motor in the old style that was also made in 2004

    You keep talking about old and new body style. Yours is a F-150 not a super-duty. His is a F-250 all basically same body style from 1999 to 2008.

    The 3V engines did not come out until 2005, both in the 5.4 and 6.8.

    Your both right. The 3v 5.4 was first availble in the '04 F150. '05 was the first year for the Super Duty line.
