And also keep in mind copper plugs do not last very long. Although high in conductivity, their durability is the lowest.
I run the Autolite 103 copper plugs by instruction of FSWerks for the turbo kit. I change them every other oil change (15k).

I'm about ready to change spark plugs on mine again at 73000 miles.
Just read the first post. What's wrong with AutolitePlatninum? I ran them on mine for the last 30K without issue.
I will probably go with NGK or Autolite copper anytime this next time around. Copper is easier on the coils.

|FocusSmocus||so what plugs and gap would be best for performance in an mk3?|

Now, if you went to something like an Autolite Racing AR92 plug, then you would have issues because that is 4 steps colder and should only be used on a forced induction application with appropriate tuning.
The Autolite 103s are fine for normal use on the Duratec 2.0. Gap them to 0.055 (some have gone to 0.060 with no issue) and you'll never have a problem. You'll see better MPG and smoother engine operation.
It is important to note that if you're looking for more power, you'll need to get the Autolite Racing AR103 plugs. The flame front is open compared to the design of the A103. The same benefits apply, with the addition of a couple extra horsepower.
Also note that copper plugs require replacing every 10-15k miles. I replace mine every year, it's just easier. Inexpensive and only takes about 20 minutes.
