I just put in the standard Motocraft plugs today. I'll let you know if I have a problem. My car wasn't really running bad, it was just 60k miles and I figured it was time. Plus I would rather spend a couple hours on Sunday with the Stang that a couple hours watching the tube. <IMG src=smileys/smiley1.gif border="0"></P>


I would recommend being careful when buying the plugs. I went to AutoZone, and it definitely makes a difference between 3.8l and 4.6l plugs. I was almost given the 3.8l plugs which are definitely a different part.</P>

the 4 prong work you can't use a stock igition.. 100.00 for plugs is crazy...you would better if you bought autolites for 10.00 and a hipo coil 50.00 and a set of low ohm plug wires 50.00

I agree. Don't waste your money on splitfires either. </P>

the ignition system on late model mustangs is pretty good. just get a decent set of regular platinum tipped plugs - ngk or bosch. iridums will get you a MAX of 1 hp over the stock setup - you'd never even notice it, you would notice the missing $100.</P>
