BOSCH copper spark plugs

Alright I know motorcraft plugs are the best to put in the truck cause thats what it came with

The dude at autozone said they were out so he recommended the BOSCH Copper ones

I said I wanted the autolite instead they were out also

So are these BOSCH copper ones any good?

Dude, seriously, thats like scraping the bottom of the barrel. It's just a normal copper plug, in no way comparable to a Motorcraft platinum. I would only run those in a lawn mower or a Chrystler (because they like them for some reason).

I'd try going somewhere else to get the plugs you want, instead of settling for what they want to sell you.

I ran autolite coppers because of their heat range at one point...truck ran actually pretty good....but really, the truck ran better on the double platinums that i put back in after some time.

copper plugs are suggested for boosted applications of our engines.

I know sometimes they can order them from another store and have them delievered to their store. If not order them offline, I got mine from Rockauto. And don't forget you do have the discounts will probally pay for shipping.

I put in diamond fire plugs into every car I work on (ranger, rav 4, century, firebird)

they're expensive but live longer and fire harder for all your revving pleasure.

I think the issue with copper plugs is they need regapping often (every 20,000 miles?). I like to put in double plats and not think about it for 50,000 miles.
