From my experience Motorcraft/Autolite plugs work best in Fords. That e3 crap is a gimmick.

Why not Motorcraft/Autolite? They make make pretty damn good stuff. I am running Autolite Iridium Xp's and haven't had one complaint about them.

I haven't heard one good thing about any other plug in ford motors. Motorcraft is the way to go. I even switched to Motorcraft filters and oil after comparing and reading up because they scored higher and had better quality then any other filter.

Well autolites are the same as the motorcraft. so anything autolite will be he same quality.

I reccomend the Platiums or Iridium XP's

I run have Motorcraft for as long as I can remember with no problems.
Maybe because I change my plugs every year, I know I don’t have too.
Tried Champs for a while because I heard they worked and lived longer but no-go, sucked !

I have turned low 12’s with 289CIs in an early Stang running Motorcraft plug with no failures, cleaned them between runs that is all.

Stick to a standard plug; the multi-electrode and those other funny plugs are as stated above “gimmicks".

IF you happen to change over to an Ignition Upgrade, the fancy plugs will feed back the wrong resistance readings to the Electronics Box and in turn screw you the wrong spark configuration.

Long Live Motorcraft...
