cool Spark Plugs and Leads for an XR6

Whats the best brand of Plugs and Leads thats available for an ED XR6? There was a discussion earlier on the subject but it was only regarding the engine with the extra 2 cylinders

Thanks in advance!:s2:

I'd either use genuine ford stuff, or go NGK stuff...

Not sure if the ED XR6 donk uses the same plugs as the EF XR6, but if they do, i'd go for the NGK's as they have a seperate listing for XR6 Falcon plugs, and they are different to the standard ones as they have a longer 'reach', Bosch don't seem to differentiate between standard and XR6 plugs, don't know about the other brands though.

I use NGK R's for plugs, & "Eagle Eliminator series" (effectively a magnacore type spiral wire lead - but cheaper) in my ED XR6.
Works quite well:s5
hehehe
Best of luck with the fitting of the new leads:s5

To remove the old leads use a piece of 1/2" flat strap with a 1/4"90 degre bend on one end & grind, file a smooth ( type curve and attack the coil pack between the inlet tubes .
