2005 Mustang GT-Do Autolite HT1's require a "tune"

I have an 05 stock GT and am going to install Autolite HT1's. I am curious if the car will need a "tune" do to the use of aftermarket plugs versus OEM plugs?

No tune needed for something like sparkplugs.

I have a very early build 05 with a Breenspeed 93 tune & C&L. Would changing my plugs be of any benefit? Its got 6008 miles on it. Ive wondered....

One benefit: the longer you wait, the harder it will be to remove the OEM plugs. You're already at what, 5-6 years? Look in the archives here for proper plug removal procedure
