Better Plugs and ???? I cant think

Hey,

I have heard from a bunch of people that after they change their old spark plugs they notice a huge difference. I was just wondering if I took it a step further and got new plugs wires and an MSD Ignition system if it would be worth the $$. I am not even sure if they make them for the 2000 V6's. If i do Go MSD should i use their plug wires too? Ne idea which system would work best for the 2000 V6 Mustang (manual if that makes a diff.)?

thanks Mike

I seen a change in my mpg and power when i changed plugs (autolite platnum) and wires (Napa life time warrenty) but i was also at 100,000 miles. Unless you are running a power adder, i dont believe that switching to the MSD system will do you any good for the $ its gonna cost ya (i could be wrong tho) Hope that helps.

yep, overkill, for sure.

But if you're planning a power adder, it's one more thing out of the way . . .

You will have to take it back off when you get the supercharger.
