Best Spark Plugs/Wires

Newbie here. Hi guys. It's getting close to the time for me to have my spark plugs and wires replaced on my 3.9L 2004 Mustang. I was wondering what would be the best brand to use. My car isn't modded much, I do have dual exhaust (not true, but going to true in about 2 months from front to back), CAI, 3.73 gears, and SCT X3 Tune. Thanks.

I would say MSD, but I have coil packs and not wires....

As crazy as this sounds, the O.E.M. coil pack is the best one you can get. The one from autozone, orlieys, screaming demon, they all tend to go out after 1-2 months. The accell coil is nice but they don't make it for 2002+

As far as plugs whatever copper plug you can find (motor craft, autolite, ngk) will work fine. Don't waste your money on anything hype.

That sums up what my mechanic told me a few years ago minus motor-craft. I didn't have a Ford product at the time.

Re: Best Spark Plugs/Wires

I just did a tune up with new wires and plugs (used the stock iridium plugs) and she runs sooooo much smoother. You could hear the previous wires arching under the hood. Sounded like a noisy lifter.

I have E3 diamond fire plugs and MSD wires now make sure on the wire you get the ones with RFI otherwise it messes with the cam sensor.
