SVT Plugs

Hi, i've done a lot of searches and can't find a response. On AutoZone website it says AP5144/APP5144 for the SVT and for the Zetec. On Advance Auto Parts site it says APP5364 for SVT and AP5144/APP5144 for SPI. Can someone without a shadow of a doubt confirm which Autolite plug works CORRECTLY on the SVT?

Thanks

According to the Autolite Website they don't make an SVT suitable plug!

I tried cross referencing the stock SVT plug and no match came up.

This is really funny as I know I have read of people using Autolite DP's in the SVT.
Could they all be using an incorrect plug?

Looks to me like it might be prudent to stick to Motorcrafts.

I appreciate the help, but the website you put is not the official website. I found the real Autolite website: www.autolite.com It says both the SVT and Zetec use APP5364.

Talking plugs

those autolite plugs APP5364 are the double platinum. i have a set in my hands and going into my focus as soon as i get my MSD coil&wires. i have all ready gapped them to .060 and ready to go. i will post after the install, but that might be a week or so depending when i receive my order from C-F-M.

Why .060? I thought the factory gap was .051. I just put them into the SVT at .051 and seems to be pretty good. The idle is a tad smoother.

Lightbulb plug gap

well it was on some advice i got from WD40. it looks like the general consensus is that works best for a non F/I eng. i guess i will have to wait and see. i guess if he or others can chime in here to shed some light on that subject it might answer some ?

I put Autolites in the SVTF when I changed em. They are the 5144s. O'reilleys/HiLo didn't have an SVTF specific copper plug either so I told em to give me the one's for the Ztec motor out of a ZX3. Hell the FRPP plug wires are the same in SVTFs and ZX3s and I won't stand for platinum plugs. Pricey and dull on the performance side. From all the info I gathered, Platinum=longevity and copper=performance. They work fine.

plugs

stock the car comes with plat plugs and mine work fine, so that is what i bought, now next time which could be by the spring time i might change to the copper plugs from ford to see if i can tell any difference. there just to easy to do and it can't hurt to try them, the price is cheap no matter what set you buy.
