Plug wires and coil?

I was going to do a wire tune up and was wondering what everyone ran for a set of good wires? Also what is a good aftermarket coil, anything out there that has a better spark then OEM?

motorcraft coil wires and plugs. especially the plugs. they run like **** with other ones. and don't let the clerk at autozone tell you that autolite are the exact same thing as motorcraft, they're not. if it doesn't say motorcraft on it don't buy it.

what about the duracraft brand (autozone) wires. I bought motorcraft plugs and duracraft wires but havent installed them yet. Is there much a price/quality difference in the wires?
