Reggie, I thought I raised you better then that. As far as plugs go, they're a little more money but go with Denso Iridiums. I run them in every car I own, and never had a problem and going on the fourth season, Mike. SCT Tuner.:bigthumbsup:bigthumbsup

The difference in wires isn't necessarily the size, it's the ohms.

Stock plug wires: 1500 ohms per foot
Ford Racing wires: 500 ohms per foot
Accel 8.8 wires: 250 ohms per foot
Accel 8.8 Race wires: 150 ohms per foot
MSD Super Conductor wires: 50 ohms per foot
Moroso Ultra 40 wires: 40 ohms per foot

You have to find the compromise between what you can afford and the least ohms per foot.

I'd say go with any copper plug, it's a better conductor of electricity than platinum or iridium, but iridium is stronger than copper and fights off detonation. The iridium also gets hotter, staying cleaner but the tiny tip can get fouled easier than a standard electrode.

There's always a trade off.

The iridiums are more, I'm not sure if there's enough of a difference to justify the cost. At the moment, I would stick with the copper.
