What kind of spark plugs should I get? 2003 Mustang

Hello everyone Im new here and I have a 2003 3.8 v6 Mustang and I cant decide what kind of spark plugs to get I have always put motorcraft because there OEM but I was told that NGK G-Power Spark Plugs where better. So I can't decide on want to get. I need some advise on what spark plugs are recommended.

some kind of copper spark plug performs best even though they wear out quicker.
