I just replaced the heads on the dodge 4.7 and started it up and it sounds like it's sputtering bad but no check engine light on and timing is dead on any suggestions?

No, they wont. New plugs are assumed in this repair but I would consider the coils as well.

Thats a code for the iat sensor in the fat hose to throttle body. Wont effect the issue.

Was there other codes before? It seemed you implied there were other codes.

Why did you do the heads
