spark plug and coil replacement

Want to change out the plugs and coils. Any ideas on the best? Was thinking about going with ACCEL products but wanted to get everyones opinion on the subject. Thanks.

Hope Terry weighs in here. I know he changed his, but forget which brand.

I've been recommended by a lot of folks to stay with Ford OEM coils as they're built the best. Last time I checked, Summit Racing carries the OEM units if you are looking for them. Best of luck!

ford for both are your best bet. make sure you blow out the spark plug wells prior to removing the plug, make sure you use some anti-seize on the plugs, make really sure you torque them down to the right spec. after about 5k miles, I would recheck the torque on them.

Well when i start the car, it seems to stutter. Not all the time, just once in a awhile. I figured, since its the same plugs that came off the factory, 16 yrs ago, i might need to change. I'm also considering new COP. Opinion???

do the plugs first and see what happens if you think the plugs are the culprit. could be couple of other things though too.
