plugs and wires

I was wondering if there are a good set of plug and wires to get that is a pretty good mod other then the screamin deamon.
People I am hearing don't really see an improvement with them is there anything else that works better?
I am thinking about plugs and maybe a filter as mods to start with.

Coil and wires arent gonna give you any performance gain. maybe smooth out your idle, but thats the wires insulation helping you, not the the coil. anyway, MSD has a 2 piece set, or you can just buy their wires to use with your stock coil.

So the wires can help with running smoother but probably not performance so don't invest alot. I thinking about getting the ford racing wires and plugs.

coil, wires, iridium plugs ..... this is a mod i decided to forego due to the expense and not getting much in return. Just doesn't seem practicle to me unless your going FI.

nology i believe, but if i recall right, they are quite expensive. Did you notice any difference w/ the nology wires? I had thought about getting those but they seems awfully expensive.

Best plug for the SVT Focus is the MotorCraft AZFS22CF4 copper core plug. They work great for both FI and NA engines, since I switched 10 months ago i believe they do just as good now as they didi then and I'm NOT easy on the car at all
