i was running through the foci sites for some wire plugs for the focus...the stock look like crap and i cant imagine the performance to be more than how they look. needless to say i finally ran across some 8mm Steeda wires for $40. My question was is this the only set available? And how much of a differnce would they make with my NGK Iridium IX's?

Beatjunkie, none of the Focus wire kits (ScreaminDemon, Livewires, Steeda...) will work on your car. Furthermore, as 05zx4st mentioned, the Coil on Plug technology is considerably better than the Zetec method of spark plug wires.

Ignition article

The whole article is rather good (HowStuffWorks) but that page is devoted to the COP system (what Duratecs have).

So, good news and bad news. Bad = you won't find plug wires for your 05. Good = you don't need them, your system is better to start with, so you save money![:)]

[confused] [poke] [screwy] Maybe i missed something there, how are you going to put wires on a coil-on-plug setup? Just in case you guys dont know, the duratec engine doesnt have plug wires at all, the coils sit on top of each plug.
