Some quesitons
1) if money isn't an issue what would be the optimal spark plug (performance, if spark plugs affect that...)
2) best bang for buck spark plugs?

3) Are these wires okay? http://focus.c-f-m.com/index.asp?Pag...OD&ProdID=1249

or what other wires would be better for similar $$$ and they have to be blue.

thanks!

If money wasnt an issues i would STILL go with the Motorcraft coppers.

The steeda wires are fine, so are about any other aftermarket wire.

Thanks for stopping by, and
However, you stumbled upon an area not quite set to answer your question.

Well, we could, but it would be better if you asked again in the Technical Chat forums, right here:

Thanks.

That is a possibility, BUT they have been proven to be a great choice in the SVT/Zetec engines as well.
