if you have a stock ignition and spark distribution just got with some motorcraft or autolite platnum plugs, thats factory, and none of those specialty plugs can improve anything on your ride, look on here and check out all the posts about them.

And in fact, any brand other than Motorcraft or Autolite will probably fail in a short amount of time, if they even work at all. That failure could range from just not working, to basically shooting the plug through the hood.
