Default How many plugs on the 4.7L

Im new to this truck and engine. 03 Ram 1500 Quad 4x4 4.7L. I came from a 98 2wd Ram 5.9L
I see that the 5.7L Hemi has 2 per cylinder. I cant find anything on how many are in the 4.7L?

Thanks

Those sludge photos on the heads of that 4.7L just scare the crap out of me. In the spring this thing is getting a complete rebuild by me.
Ive never done one of these engines before but I own an 04 Blown Terminator Cobra and have built it a couple of times just to learn the engine... several smaller 6's etc

8 plugs the next gen 4.7 w/ the higher power ratings has 2 per cyl. I believe and I wouldnt be to worried thats just idiots with all the sludge for the most part. Had a 4.7 Dakota in my family from 0-165k miles never had a problem w/ the engine (or anything lol) just synthetic oil every 3-3.5k miles. And my buddy has a 4.7 Cherokee w/ well over 200k never a problem. For the most part any engine could be sludged to crap if ignored from what ive talked to guys I know down at the dealer and mechanics around the 4.7 is very thirsty but pretty solid
