drostedrummer89 So if I just installed the oem svt plugs 5,000 miles ago, would I have zero performance gain from changing over to sp-463? I work at a ford dealer, so the decision only costs me $6. Can't remember how much I paid for OEM.

MDCalvert Most people say .60 for best performance. I'm pretty sure ford recommends .52 or something

stromberg2 On the coppers, what is the best gap size?

1turbofocus If you have mods to your engine then the DDP plugs are not only a waste of money but also to hot of a heat range , by the time you pay shipping and the insane price of thise plugs you can buy 3+ sets local of the SP463 and have a safer engine

If your bone stock and have the money to waste .... go for it

GBPackFan I admit it, when I worked at autozone, and ONLY because I got a DEEP discount on them, I tried those plasma plugs. I hated them so bad, I switched back to the Motorcraft Double Plats. I got a great deal on them from Steve @ Tousley Ford. From then on, I have only run with Motorcraft Double Platinums.

TheGlassMaker Yep motorcraft is the why to go. More people have cranked more power out of the stock motorcraft coil and plugs than any other setup.

1turbofocus There is NO WAY I would ever use a Plat or Uridium plug in any Focus engine , there far to hot a heat range (I dont car what they claim) for performance

Dont even get me started on Denso or any of most of the other plugs out there

The Motorcraft SP463 is very cheap and 1 step colder then the stock plugs , I would use those

DLQ001 Get the platinum Desno plugs from Rock Auto. $35 shipped and they will last a long time.
