I'm not sure what the best brand is just be carefully installing them not to cross thread them or anything and make sure you torque them to the right lb feet. Or you will end up blowing a spark plug down the road.

Last week I put in the NGK IX iridium spark plugs, Taylor street wires, and a screamin demon coil pack. It helps with the throttle response! My rpms would jump from 2200 to like 2700 from the low end torque. The combination of those made it more solid and not jumpy, but quicker. I would recommend the NGK ones from personal experience. They're good plugs

I have used autolite for over 40 years. Probably better ones out there but there is no reason for me to switch.

If you're replying to my deleted comment, I apologize. I wasn't paying attention, and didn't notice you have a 4.0. No, to my knowledge, it was just the 4.6 that had that problem.

As a side note, from your avatar, your Pony looks great! Love the stripes on the Sonic Blue.

Autolite, motocraft, NGK are the top 3 you should look at.

I've used Autolites in everything I've ever had my entire life with great results. Although I keep hearing from everyone else that the 4.6s love the NGK plugs so I might give those a shot. Need to do plugs/wires and relocate my coil packs anyway so I might as well. The 5.4L in my Expy needs plugs too, not looking forward to that mess...
