Coil pack and spark plugs question

I am thinking about buying a screamin demon coil pack for my 3.0l 2004. I figure i might as well change out the spark plugs and wires while i'm at it. Anybody have suggestions on which spark plugs and wires are best for all around performance?

The Autolite XP's are pretty good. As for wires, most of performance sets should do. I normally stay away from the standard auto parts store replacement ones.

The thicker wire has better sheilding and can handle more abuse before it will chafe and arc, etc...
