Spring tune up advice (Synthetics, plugs, etc...)

I'm gonna give my car an early spring tune up (prob. the first one - bought my car last Sept.) and I just wanted some advice and if at all possible specs/part numbers for some things.

I'm gonna get new plugs - either NGK Iridiums, Denso Iridiums or Motorcraft coppers. I'm leaning towards the iridiums as they'll only be about $20-30 more a set but may be hard to get. Anyways, does anyone have any part numbers for any of these and any experience changing to one of these brands?

Second is new wires - either F/S 8 mm for about $80, or Ford motorsport 9mm (I believe?) for $?? Are the FocusSports overhyped? Should I save a few bucks and get the bigger Ford wires and if so, do you have a part number?

Third, I'm gonna switch the oil to Mobil 1 5W30 which is certian but the tranny swap to Mobil 1 is a bit iffy....is it just a universal manual tranny fluid or ATX fluid? Is there a specific weight like the crankcase' oil? Anyone have experience swapping the tranny fluid over?

I figure this 'tune-up' should smooth out the idle and maybe give me a little better mileage for couple hundred and last for quite some time so it's a worthwhile investment imo. Any help and advice is appreciated and I have searched all the way back to last August and there are almost no mentions of part number so I thought I'd throw this in !! Thanx, Todd
