Any recomendations for replacement plugs and wires for a 1999 Taurus
with the Duratec engine?

My first choice would either be Motorcraft or Autolite with
platinum tips. It has been my experience the OEM specified
platinum plugs work well and will easily last 60,000 miles
without further attention. I would not bother with
multielectrode plugs or other unconventional designs unless
the manufacturer of the vehicle recommends them. As far as
the wires, my first choice would be the Motorcraft OEM
wires. My second choice would be a premium aftermarket
brand. the Autolite brand wires would also be a good choice
in the aftermarket for your Ford product. In any case I
would buy the best wires available in your area your
vehicle. When you replace the wires you should take care to
route the wires is nearly as possible the same as the
original wires.

Eric-

I'd go with Motorcraft OEM replacement plugs and wires. You can usually buy
them cheaper online than you can at the dealership. I have ordered stuff
like that from www.rockauto.com before. They typically have discount codes
you can use to save money on top of their already decent prices and good
service.

Plugs, in order:
Motorcraft
Autolite
AC Delco

Stay away; Bosch, Champion (haw-w-w-wk, ptuiiii!) Any aftermarket-only
plug.

Wires:
Motorcraft, AC Delco, Belden -OEM quality or better, ONLY!-

Stay away; everything else... unless you plan on selling soon.
