Not going to debate a post from '07, we lost John a while ago now and special cases and parts can apply.
What you'll normally find is all of the same resistance value, special low resistance or even solid wire types are a separate category. When you go to solid wire you'd need to find resistor plugs if you want to eliminate RF interference, haven't actually seen those for cars myself in a long time.

Stock Motorcraft Spark Plug Wires No Good?
I've read several posts that say stock wires (and I'm thinking that means Motorcraft) are fine.
You seem to disagree, so I'm confused.
Are you sticking by your original statement? Is any clarification needed?
Anybody else want to weigh in?

Open the hood and find the spark plug wires.
That will answer your question.

Anyone know where i can get performance spark plug wires for a 2012 FF se. 2.0L

He has a 2003 like I do which clearly states 1.3mm under our hood. Also my math is completely correct.
I just typo the 1.5 over 1.3 my bad let me go edit that for you lol
1.3 divided by 25.4 = 0.051, 1mm is .03936996

Taken directly from the emissions decal under the hood.
1.5mm would be .059", check your math.

|StephenElsbree1986||Um .06 is a little high for ours also. I drop mine down to .051 and it feels a lot better, it depends on the power you're making how you want to gap it. Anyway stock gap is 1.3mm which is .051 in you're gaping to high.....imho....|

After reading through this thread I decided I should go check my spark plugs because my neighbor had gapped them when we were trying to figure out why my engine was misfiring (ended up being a broken wire in the coil pack) and I'm pretty sure he didn't gap them correctly. Sure enough, I check them today and they were only at ~.050 which would be on the low end for my (mostly) stock SVT according to what others are doing. I gapped them up to .060 and it definitely felt better even with the stock replacement plugs and the stock wires. I'm thinking next time I change the plugs I'll be going with the copper cores to see what kind of a difference that makes, and then possibly switching to some aftermarket wires since I'm sure these ones are towards the end of their lives.
EDIT: I didn't mean to say the guy didn't gap them correctly, he just didn't bother to ask where I wanted them and just kinda threw them in the car.

No you dont , on the ones that have wires going to bigger wires or coils never showed any gains , the stock wires/ coil did just as good as anything else sold
