This.

AZFS22C / SP-463


Do not use anything but.
The NGK's heat range is not the same.
Bosch is all around junk for our cars.
Champion/AC/etc don't offer a proper fit or heat range for our cars.


Motorcraft/Autolite or nothing/problems.

this. x1000. Gapped .055-.060. Smooths out the idle.

And the MSD coil is ok...but when it goes, switch back to a stock coil. Theyre proven to 600+ whp....and its cheaper :D
