Default Recommend spark plugs and coil boots?

I need to get some new spark plugs and coil boots for my 2001 GT.

I don't want to break the bank, but I also want to make sure what I get is up-to-par with the fact my Mustang is supercharged and likely needs or would benefit from something better than budget-grade.

I usually shop at Oreilley's. Can anybody make a recommendation?

Search spark plugs and cops on this forum, there is a guy "Cliffy" who has researched this topic, you will not find a more comprehensive write up any where.

Very cool. Thanks.

I think I found the thread you are talking about:

http://mustangforums.com/forum/4-6l-...op-tester.html

So with my supercharged GT it looks like I should just go with stock/factory spec plugs and stick with Motorcraft coils and plug boots, yes?

Anybody know a good source for those parts? I'm seeing prices of around $275 for a set of coils and boots. Maybe I don't need to replace them all, but 1 has been sitting in coolant, another the conductor spring is all rusty, those two have been misfiring, and third has a broken connector on it. The car has 62,000 miles on it. I'm right to be wanting to just get a full set of new coils, boots and plugs, right?

I think there is another post on spark plugs, I think rock auto has motor craft COP's for a reasonable price, but you will have to check

Check you local ford dealer as well sometimes and i mean sometimes you can get a good price.

I'll check Rock Auto.

Good suggestion in checking the dealer out...I called and unfortunately the COP with boot is $76 each.
