Not sure if they are the best but I guess we will see, someone else may know some better plugs...

Look up the car on the Denso catalog and buy that part number.
Next best option is NGK

Next best after that is, there is no next best after that.

are bosch iridium triple conducter plugs any good Brad? I know the three conductor thing comes from the old boys indexing plugs but wasn't sure about the iridium.

Like I said in an other thread, most people these days can't even take a s**t with out asking the internet for advice first.

It isn't hard mate, Ford did all the hard work for you and spec'ed out a plug and then all the plug manufacturers put a listing for it in their catalogs.
You won't make any noticeable increase in anything by trying to second guess the vehicle manufacturer. For all I care you can waste all the money you like on 'special plugs', but it won't make knobs of goat s**t difference.


So I quote the advice I gave you. If you look it was the second reply to your question and I told you the two best brands you can buy, I know this due to over 10 years experience, combined with the huge number of years of experience of all the people I've had the privilege of working with over those years.

Since you like to carry on like that, When I see you ask a question that really does deserve a full detailed answer, I just won't answer, I'll leave it up to the people who's most useful tool in their toolbox is google and who have no experience beyond owning a falcon and making a few basic repairs on the footpath in front of their house. They can throw guesses at you all day long and you can, just like them, stumble upon the cause of the problem and fix by accident and then pretend to to the internet world that you know what you're doing.

OR
You can pull your head out of your a*** and recognize good advice when you see it.

So you think that you should use the plugs that ford recommend, you so crazy.
Don't worry I'll offer this muppet some advice - don't bite the hand that feeds, know you're place and take a breather, it's just the Internet.

tickford_6 is a mechanic with years of experience, he answered the question based on professional experience, what you choose to do with that information is up to you but how often do you get free advice from an experienced mechanic who takes time to assist others like yourself.
i bought a 1967 cortina in 1994 with the original ford specified autolite plugs still fitted, i then put new plugs in (champions from memory) when they failed as they were crap i cleaned and re-gapped the original autolites and re-fitted them. they were in the car until the day i sold it 3 years later.
