looking for any suggestions where to take the bird to get plugs & wires done. ford says they can only use stock ford parts, which means i'd be doing the wires myself afterwards. anyone know of a garage that won't f**k up my car trying to change them? i know many places won't even touch it because its such a pain.

get youself a set of magnecore wires, and some double platnium motorcraft plugs.

Don't get any other plug except a double platnium, seeing as you are going for longevity.

You can't do it yourself? It would be a whole lot cheaper. A couple of hours of your time under the car and its done.

I would look into the TAYLOR wire sets for the SC...They run pretty low in cost and compare to the best of them...I run the Acell Extreme 9000 wires with great luck for 80bux a set, but I am gonna go Taylor when time permits...

Oh yea...And just do it yourself...Just takes a lil patiance and not many tools...Just be sure to get a GOOD connection when you attach the wires....Pretty common to have problems right after the plug change due to just that..."Bad Connections"

BTW..ALSO...The Haynes manual "If you even use it" has the WRONG wire placment in their diagram for the SC Coil pack" So BEWARE...Simplest thing to do is pay close attention to the wires when you remove the old ones...Label them or whatever...

Good luck man..

I gotta join the crowd, and go with these guys. Doint them yourself is a hell of a lot cheaper. Besides, the money you save on the mechanic, you can buy yourself the wires with, so you're saving 80-100+ dollars right there.

I do mine every 6 months, and takes me just a little over an hour.

But you will have to do them from underneath the car. Or, you can be like me the first time I changed the plugs and think "aww, those idiots on that board don't know what they are talking about", and spend 5 hours trying to get to the plugs from the top, only to fianlly give up and sheepeshly crawl under the car to remove the plugs.
