I'd stick with motocraft plugs, copper tipped. Mod motors don't like any other kind lol. I'd say 8mm wires be plenty, til your heavily modified.

Like he stated autolite or motorcraft coppers are your best bet.

Alright glad I asked because I would've got NGKs lol. And I'm definitely not heavily modded so that sounds right to me

The big, fancy plugs aren't worth the money. Motorcraft is Ford, my engine is Ford, problem solved.
You really don't need colder or stronger plugs until you've gone FI in my experience.

Like BackPressure FI or juice would be the only reasons I see to change away from factory heat range on a street car. Nextly what do you guys think for ignition wire and coil pac upgrades?

yea stay copper motorcraft/autolite and gap them correctly (check gap always) no need to blow money, if the wires are worn out and messed up replace else probably no point.

thats cool, but no need to go crazy, MSD had at one time some nice red ones that worked good~ shop around and get some fitted ones vs just any will do aftermarket that are not custom fit to the car

Brothers performance had red or blue ones for like $100. I think they were 8mm. But I'd shop around, u might find cheaper elsewhere.
