Stock works just fine in all cases. No need to waste money. Spend it elsewhere.

As theses two have said stock is fine. Ford got the ignition right.

MSD and screemin demon won't give you any more power or performance. Just a waste of money better spent elsewhere.

going with 8mm or higher plug wires with copper plugs can help with smooth idle etc.
