Yes big difference. The bosch plugs are garbage in our motors. Definitely go with motorcraft or autolite. Platinum plugs are ok and will last a little longer than copper. Ford uses motorcraft platinum from the factory. I switched to the coppers and now will never run anything else in my mustang.

basically 99.9% of the crap you see advertised for plugs is all BS. Go with a good reliable brand (OEM Ford for example).

You get nothing for upgrading to the super expensive ones. If you go with copper you just have to change more regularly. The most important thing here is to check their gap, thats mostly it. Dont believe the hype.... I am running Iridium as thats what came in mine and I can run a larger gap with my supercharger setup, but many run copper in mine 100% fine. I just dont like to change mine yearly. For yours with copper you should be fine for a LONG time.

also be sure not to tq them down to tight, you dont want to mess up the threads, also antiseeze should be used (dont go crazy with it)
