Motorcraft copper plugs HERE or the factory platinums HERE. These are the plugs that should be run the in the SVT. As for bigger plugs and using a adapter sounds like a horrible idea, I can already see the multiple misfires from even thinking about using that lol.

bigger plugs, sounds like that thing u ziptie to the fuel line and it boosts fuel mileage by 10 percent, or the "turbo" you put in the intake, anything it takes to make people pay for pointless garbage. Sick with factory plugs unless your boosted ( and i dont think you are ) and then go copper

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

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

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.

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.
