What Plugs and Spark Plug Wires?

What kind of spark plug wires and spark plugs run good for ZeTec Focus's?
I am new to Focus's because my stepdad just bought one and we are gonna do some mild tuning to it. I only ask this question because I drive a ford probe and NGK Iridium XI are best for my car along with Nology wires or Magnecor wires. Is there anythign in particular that Focus's like more?

As for plugs, go with autolite double plats. Stay away from Bosch unless they are the standard plats. FR plug wires are great bang for your buck wires.
