Changed my spark plugs today

They were so corroded and the electrodes were worn down, best part is I didn't break a single one and got all my power back! p.s. went with ford racing HTO's

Are some motorcraft brand and others autolite? Perhaps they have been changed before

How many miles and any tips or tricks

only time they usually break is if there the original which are only motorcraft and would have a paint dot on the tip of the plug.

i dont blame u at all man but usually after there change the 1st time they rarely break, motorcraft redesided the plug to shorten the porclein so that they dont break as easy, not saying they wont break cause they will but not as easy and useually is a good break lol

lol well thank God. the guy who had it before apparently didn't know how to change spark plugs because there were 2 different brands and they weren't gapped properly
