Default Spark Plugs

I just bought new 9mm Ford Racing spark plug wires and i want to change the plugs as well, i just wanted to know which spark plugs are the best to go with the new wires. Should i get stock plugs or aftermarket performance plugs?

stock spark plugs with 9mm race wires doesn't sound like the best way to go. Ngk v-groove plugs work really well and they are inexpensive. they would be a great way to go.

why use those wires?....they have a ton of resit in them..I'm not flaming you on this....just want to help people make good choices

you want plug wires with the least resit per foot..if your going to use those wires I won't spend the $$$$$ for any other plug than autolites 24's

I put in some stock non platinum motorcrafts in mine which I'm sure are just autolites, mainly because I work at Ford and they had 'em. And since, you're proably basically stock, that's what I'd reccomend also. Thanks for the heads up on the wires vfast, I think I'll go with MSD, what do you think?
