The instructions Vortech supplies states to use the same plug that Ford recommends, going down to a cooler plug what kind of affects will that have? Should I move to the HTO's or not?
lol yeah but Vortech also expects you to run their canned tune which is most likely pig rich and also on the safer side of timing. Pretty sure you're gonna be running (hope so at least, for the most power) a Brenspeed revised tune after the start up tune, or better yet a dyno tune to really get it all dialed in.
In that case, the one step colder is highly recommended.
Be careful with removing those spark plugs and I'd reserve more time than expected in case the worse happens. When I used to work at a Ford dealership, I seen a tech break two in the heads of an F150 and he freaked! He tried to quote the customer an extra $600-800 to manually use the Lisle tool to remove all eight that way if any were to further break. I think he tried charging a friggin' hour per spark plug

Iridium NGK is maybe best for daily driving if they're available for the early 16mm thread pattern...
What's up Pascal.. long time no speak
Ditto on the Brisk spark plugs. I had an issue with running mine for two years without checking them, and turned out all of the terminal nuts were loose! I ended up having to remove them all and re-tightening them due to misfiring issues.
