Hi I think I read a post already about this already but this is my first V8 mustang and first 302 as well. I just recently bought the car last Saturday as fixer upper since I can't afford to buy a nice running and driving one. I've been noticing it hasn't been running 100% so I while checking the spark plugs on broke while I was putting it back in. I don't have enough money right now to buy the same plugs right now I was planning on getting these plugs since I work at Walmart and can use my discount with them just wondering if there any good for a stock motor? Thanks in advance

Those are the exact plug that you should run, gap em to the tight side of the stock spec and enjoy.

Our cars don't need all of the fancy overpriced plugs. They don't help and actually sometimes cause problems.

May not be everyone's result but I pulled the platinums the previous owner put in my car out and put 25's in and picked up 2mpg and my car quit running like ass.

Thanks guys I replaced them today now my battery is dead and my step dad isn't home to jump me off don't want to buy jumper cables for this one time right now or buy a battery if I don't need it until I can get the car running and driving right. Don't have the extra money right now to buy battery and jumper cables etc. But did notice that either the guy who sold me the car and or people who owned it before are IDIOT'S!! They had NGK Iridium plugs on the driver's side and one on the number one cylinder on the passenger side the other three were Autolite Double Platinum plugs and neither of the eight had been gapped properly and has been fouled out with carbon as well.
