    What spark plug brand and part # do you like for your 5.0?

    Is there a consensus on one that our engines like best overall?

    Pretty much everyone runs Autolite copper plugs. A few people buy NGK plugs. They work about the same.

    NGK is all that I run in mine. Ran the auto lite plugs for years with no trouble, just like the NGK better now

    N/A applications run Autolite copper not platinum. Cheap and hardly ever foul
    Boosted I ran NGK
    Certain Alum head manufacturers have their own recommendations

    Avoid splitfire, E3, or Accel. All IMO are pure garbage.
