You can get copper, it's up to you. Copper has the shortest life but gives the best spark.
And honestly, its exactly like I described. The coils are right on top. You take out the 10mm bolts, pop off the coil, and there's your spark plug down inside. Super simple.
Changing these spark plugs could take a person less than 10 minutes if they were in a hurry. I'm really pleased with the layout of the duratec because changing plugs on my Mustang was a nightmare that always ended in blood and swearing.
