If you dont have the money for the Motorcraft ones , you will have to try about and compare non OE plug wire prices from motor factors or accessory stores .They will supply correct parts based on information you supply them , ie year , model , engine etc .

Just as a heads up, I've never had luck with NAPA brand.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

I would not suggest motorcraft. The Probe motor is Mazda, which is Japanese. So I would go with NGK brand.

Use the wires the engine calls for. If you find that the after market wires are not up to
the job and have to buy another set you just spent the money for the O.E. wires that you should have bought in the first place. Don't know about the NGK wire sets but we
call NGK plugs No Good Krap. They work great in snowmobiles and motor cycles. ( well
sometime ). You probably have a ZETEC engine which is Ford.

Um, y'all? This was last February. If he's still undecided, there's nothing we can do for him.

Oh whow. Sorry. I didn't look at the date. Me bad. I've been known to screw up from time to time.
