    my car is NA and i found it likes autolite platinum's. alot of guys don't like them but my car loves those things.

    for the price i dint think you can beat ford racing wires they are 9mm but id get the custom set and cut them to the length you want ....unless you don't care if some are a few inches to long

    autolite's I have read to stay away from platinums and there not worth the money, but I guess since wayne likes them it must just be personal prefrence.

    Motorcraft and nothing but Motorcraft....I used Autolite Double Platnium for 6 months until today because my car was misfiring. Turns out the plugs are WAY different than Motorcraft....Motorcraft has a finer electrode and sits further down in the head. I went two heat rangers hotter on my plugs because of the premium fuel tune i use....WOW what a difference... car is smooooooth. Maybe you guys have had better luck that i have with autolites but im done with them!

    Autolite 764s

    Copper for performance.
    Platinum for longevity.

    I'll take copper anyday.

    For just your regular stang, the Motocraft Platinums are a perfect replacement. But if your looking into the high performance direction, I'd use NGK TR6 Copper Core plugs gapped at .035". That's what I use and it runs like a champ!

    you cant go wrong with autolites, there fairly cheap, last a long time and are a great plug or motorcraft.

    I've had great result with Motorcraft, MC would be the with IMHO. Autolite make a good plug as well for for fairless stock motors (even h/c/i motors) I would go MC. I'm going to try Auolite 24's though since I got a good deal on them.
