ohms is resistance. Ohms is the measurement of resistance (like in car audio)

I swapped to the screamin demon so I have the one off my truck. It's a 2004 with 70,000 when I pulled it. It all checked out fine when I ohm'd it. Motorcraft site is down so I can't do a cross check between years on fitment.

The haynes manual outlines the ohm check on it.

yes, it's too late to get it out today. It could be done for Sat delivery or Monday.
