Just ask what you want to know on here.

There are basically only two things.

Platinum plugs last forever (100k miles) but aren't that great for performance.

Copper core plugs conduct better and will produce a hotter spark but need to be replaced more often. How often depends on the condition of your engine and your driving habits.

There are new-fangled plugs that all claim to be better. Not one has proven it on an engine dyno that I'm aware of.

I'm just trying to learn about the types in general. Also looking for a good performance every day driver plug, and ignition

for a mostly stock motor, the stock motorcraft ignition will work perfectly for your every need.

For plugs, I run Motorcraft 32C's (32C is the last 3 digits of the part number) as they're better for performance, and fire Colder than other plugs, which helps rpevent against detonation if you're running a good amount of advancement on the timing.
