If your still pretty much stock, then OEM Motorcraft are fine and not to expensive.

I will be doing mine as well tomorrow. I've seen different opinions on torque specs online. Anyone care to give their knowledge on this? First time changing plugs on the Stang.

Just like Slows stickie.
Pay CLOSE attention while removing the plugs. Look for any that are hard to remove and generally don't back out smoothly. Those cylinders are the ones that you need to be VERY careful when reinstalling the plugs.
It's also a good idea to use some dielectric grease on the inside of the coil boots before you reinstall the coils.
It should all go smoothly...

Oh, and the torque spec?
Not too f'n tight!

Torque spec is 12 ft lbs or 144 (set to 145) INCH lbs. Do NOT overtighten or you WILL blow out a thread. You can get a $20 torque wrench from Harbor Freight that is 1/4" drive and does up to 200 inch lbs.

Gap and TQ lb I put in my sticky..

It's 0.54 ( factory ) I know you gap more if you have more hp, but I don't think bolt ons will get you there.. More for power adders..

And 12lb to put them in,

Please do not forget to put anti-seize on the threads .. And be careful taking them off..
