changing sparkplugs while incoherently drunk is just as challenging as it may sound

Yea they run nice in my ride, changed them out twice in 90k miles with no issues.

They give a lil more power too :)

Stay with the Motorcraft double platinums, or the fine-wire platinums.

If you aren't mis-firing, no power is to be gained from the type of plug used.
Bosch caused a misfire problem in my 3.0L, and there have been many other complaints from Bosch plugs posted. Stay with Motorcraft, you will get the correct heat range, and they will last the longest!
