Welcome aboard...First of all in tyhe Best interest of helping you...It would be advisable to state what Motor Your New found Dreamboat has?!!!..Is it a 302 or a 351W?...My best results have always been with the Stock OEM Motorcraft Spark Plugs...as far as the The Plug Wires Go..I have started with what came on the car when I bought it..Heaven only knows what they were???..The 1st day of ownership led me down a dark path with Accel Plug wires..This lasted about a month...2 Plug wires burned up and Shorted out...I then Spent the Extra money on Blue 9mm Ford MotorSport wires...I got lucky and got a set for $50...This is about half aof what the OEM Motorcraft Wires go for!!...Either way you can't go wrong...Welcome to the Board!!!!.....Allen

Welcome to CVN. I use Motorcraft in all Fords. Don't forget to change the wire strainer under the PCV valve,& the fuel filter. Ric
