Use whatever is in the owners manual? I did the Motorcraft ones. They're fine.

If you have Autolites in there now and it runs fine, seems best to let it be.

Ran AC plugs for 2 years, car ran great. Yesterday #1 & #2 boots failed. Misfire with flashing engine light. I was too far from home to drive home and replace parts myself.

Local shop replaced 4 boots and spark plugs with Autolite AP104. The mechanic blamed the failed boots on AC plugs.

What I would like to know is what is "tune electronic ignition minor?" That is one of the services listed on the invoice.

Bosch makes a lot of things. Some are good, some are bad.

I've got Autolite 103s and I would not use anything else.

I have 104s in... the guy at FSWerks said I should go with 104s instead of 103s not sure why. Perhaps because I'm not modded heavily?

The 104s definitely made a difference but it's not a surprise from what the old one's looked like when I took them out on Tuesday.

I been running 103s since about 30k, just replaced them at 55k, the car runs great, I remember the day i switched to them, i dont know if it made a difference on the high rpm part, but It seems a little better on the low end. I have a manual so i can notice it a bit when taking off

I run 104's without any issues. Been about 10K now and about 20 shots of nitrous.

Bosch multi ground electrode plugs only work on NON DIS engines.
