It is an 88 5.0L Windsor in an F-150
I find it easier to undo the the four bolts holding the fuel rail and lift the whole lot out of the way including the injectors, If the injectors stay in the rail you won't lose fuel pressure.
But the F150's lose fuel pressure overnight anyway.
It might be a good idea to clean/service the injectors if they have't been done for a while.
Check for cracks between valve seats as this can be a problem on windsor heads, The main indications are loss of water out the exhaust.
