the v-10 is basically a 5.4 v8 with 2 cylinders added. the reliability also follows the 8's the fuel mileage is not that bad considering a 5.4 is a turd when pulling loads a v10 has no sweat doing. i have seen 5.4's get 8-10 and working there butts off when a v10 will get 8 and cruise all day long (same load). the plug spitting thing is rare and has been seen on all the family engines. there is and insert style (cheap fix) that can be done without removing the head BTW
