    New to me 2003 Marauder

    Have liked these panther cars since they came out, was able to pick one up yesterday! Will not have a chance to see it in person for 3 weeks as I am out of the country, but looking forward to starting a new experience.

    I keep hearing about spark plugs going through the hood....is this something to worry about and or can it be prevented? Any other pitfalls I should have attended to?

    Thanks and look forward to being here!

    The 2003 only had about 3 threads of engagement on spark plugs. Make sure to change them with a cold motor and your best line of defense to prevent a blowout is to torque them to spec.
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard

    The plug problem is exaggerated. It's got a coil on it and a coil cover bolted over that. It will never achieve orbit with a paint sample. Welcome to your new addiction. You are among some of the friendliest and most knowledgeable folks in the galaxy.
