Thinking about getting some red 9mm Ford Racing wires. Worth the $40?

I noticed advanced auto has a no name brand spark plug wire 10mm pretty cheap, would that be a bad idea?

In my opinion bigger wires are always worth it... it lets you run a larger gap on your plugs.

Bigger gap means bigger spark means better burn.

I just got my motorcraft spark plugs, and it seems as if they have a tiny bit of oil around the threads, i inspected all the plugs and they all look new, but there was oil on the threads.

I have never seen any plugs ever come with oil, or lubed or whatever iti s. There is even some slight oil markings inside the box for each plug.


So my question is, do motorcraft plugs come pre oiled, or did I end up with used plugs somehow?

Probably just a light coating of oil to keep them from rusting during storage/shipment.

changed to the copper plugs, no difference in power, still starts up oddly, but it idles much smoother, I guess that is a positive.

One of my plugs looked f'd up, ill have to post a pic.
