Spark Plugs

I am having a hard time finding Motorcraft Spark plugs for my 2001 FORD CROWN VICTORIA 8 Cylinders 281 W 4.6L SFI. The dealer has them buy want around $8.00 each. Any suggestions on where online I could order them. Any suggestions on different brand plug?

Thanks

Re: Spark Plugs

Champion makes a good spark plug. Consider the fact that they make only ignition equipment, so all of their resources are dedicated to making an effective ignition system. Other companies make various different items, so their resources have to be divided among the different things they make. Maybe it doesn't make a lot of difference in reality, but it seems like it can't hurt. Just something to keep in mind.

Re: Spark Plugs

Sounds like they are pricing out plat. plugs. You could use regular plugs if you do not mind changing them more often. You just use the same first part of the plug number then change the fm or pp to a c.
