2 Questions regarding turbo kit

Specs for build..AR .48 Garrett internally gated turbo on 8psi...zetec engine

1) What are some good spark plugs that i can use with my turbo build? Not looking for anything fancy, just a DD car. I dont have the tool to gap the plugs...where and how much do they cost?

2) When fabbing up downpipes, do most people use only one 02 sensor or still use both? I heard you can get the downstream sensor deleted. Is the second sensor mainly deleted for CEL purposes?

Thanks

good plugs are motorcraft copper cores, And a gaping tool is about 99 cents.

rear o2 sensor can be deleted via a custom tune. front o2 configs your a/f ratio

AZFS22C new number I think is 463 those are Ford Part numbers

No need for the rear o2 , It will be turned off in the tune you will be needing

No offence... but why mail order them when you can go to the local parts store (advance auto) and get the set for less than $10???
