Spark plugs

Whats the best spark plug at a reasenable price? Need to change since i didnt yesterday. Is the plugs the reason for the jump and little drop of rpm at stop and in park. It just started doing this.

Possibly could be the problem.. You'll notice if it's missing if when you're accelerating it kinda sounds weird and doesn't really want to go as fast or smooth as it normally should.. But yeah motorcraft plugs and wites

Autolite or motorcraft coppers are the best.. its not worth the extra cash to get fancy plugs, these ford motors don't agree with a lot of different plugs for some reason.

Guy I know has a early 2000s mach 1 all hyped up and he still uses autolite coppers.. he tried the e3s and they just gave out after about a month

I run motorcraft coppers. They dont last as long as the platinums, but they are the best plugs we can use in the 3.8.

So some expensive NGK plugs are not worth it?

On a mostly stock car, nope.

I have motorcraft platinum plugs and the car ran pretty good after putting them in. It had autolite coppers in it before that and would miss and bog down here and there.

I went with autolite platinum and autolite wires runs sooo much better and even has a little more power. Now just need a air filter.

to be honest the power you feel is just from going from old plugs to new ones...it always surprises people how bad they need to replace them until they do

as for air filter consider a high flow drop in. Advance has both Spectre and K&Ns (spectre's are half the price)...i'd assume autozone carries them as well

I know that feeling.. I did it a dumb way though, did plugs, then a week or so later a fuel filter, then a couple weeks later I did my wires and an oil change. I didn't really get a noticeable boost in power, just felt like it was a little closer to where it should be.
