June 4, 2004looked at all the friggin spark plug threads going on... and man there were alot of em. Between this site and a bunch of other. All the threads tell you to get different plugs. So i decided to just get the stock plugs. I was gonna get one heat range cooler but they didnt have em. So i just got the motorcraft double platnium plugs, and gaped em to .052. That should be alrite right? Anyway, I am waiting for me engine to cool before trying to install em. If it doesnt cool soon I might just wait till tomorow morn. to do it. But anyway, was that an ok plug choice or what?

June 4, 2004I have aways heard NGK work good. Motorcraft plugs are ok. Have fun
June 4, 2004ok took me an hour and a half from start to finish. It is a real pita to get the wires off the plugs. Then it was smooth sailing, on the drivers side at least. Got to the passanger side and had to take the tb pipe off. THen i had to take the strut tower brace off b/c i couldnt get the rachet in there with the stb on. But once all that stuff was off it was again pretty smooth sailing. I wanted to replace the wires while i was at it, but i couldnt get frpp 9mm red's, so i figured i will do it some other time. My wires are in good shape anyway. I think the motorcraft plugs will be fine, i mean even if they are'nt the "best performing" plugs the only difference is gonna be a fraction of a hp anyway. The plugs that came out were in for 51k and man were they shot. The electrodes on all of em were worn down, and there was corrosion around the porclain tops. SO, i am glad i changed em. I am gonna go take her for a ride now and see if i can feel any difference.
June 4, 2004I used Motorcraft recently. I called a local dealer and asked him to give me the correct model to use. Your car should start and idle better now.
June 4, 2004i currently have motorcraft also, i wouldnt of gotten the platinum ones myself but im sure they will work great anyway.
