    go with NGK TR55 they are pregapped to 55 I like 'em, but get a chilton manual anyway. They can save your ass.

    I would get Motorcraft platinum spark plugs.
    They will last longer and they don't have to be gapped
    if your get platinums.I always ran Motorcraft spark
    plugs in my mustang.

    My mechanic reccomended autolite copper for my mustang, thats why i was going to get those.

    If all fails, resort to the catalyst sticker under your hood. That has alot of good info including spark plug gap for your engine. O0
