SVT Spark Plug Wires and plugs?

Ok after quite of bit of searching and debate for my needs I have about decided that the stock SVT coil pack is plenty for my needs. With that being said I do need to find some good spark plug wires and plugs. I have about decided to go with the stocker spark plugs or the copper core ones. As for spark plug wires I am going to need some help. What is the best choice is there really any difference?

Here are some links that I have been looking at.

Thanks for the time and input.

THe focus sport are the better of your options you have listed. The Ford Racing Ones are good if you can find some.

I've had MSD wires on my SVT for almost 3 years now, and they definitely get the job done. I had MSDs on my blazer, and those wires lasted FOREVER.

Motorcraft coppers (Z22's) and Taylor Thundervolts made a noticable difference.

^^^Another vote for the Taylor plug wires.

^^^Check out my posted links in that thread as well.

I have found the FRPP wires to be inferior to pretty much any other "performance" wires available.

I also vote for the Taylor Thundervolts. The plug boots are pretty much indestructable, nothing but smiles here.
