I second the ACES - bought two bottles in the past and just purchased a gallon. Use it for a few tanks and you won't be disappointed.

if you can't find what you need/want here then just do what i did. google it there are plenty of options. as for which particular one to use, it seems the popular choice is copper (many have stated that our cars don't much like the platinums) or iridium (though the price/performance is hard to justify for the iridiums)

one brand in particular seems to stand out: NGK. not familiar with it personally, but seems to be recommended a lot and is offered in the link above

SRT8s use the platinum plugs... Just the R/Ts use copper.

Okay so thought id update you guys, i changed out the plugs to brand new Champion Double platinum's, cleaned my Mopar filter & intake. Took my throttle body off and cleaned that, i also cleaned the inside of my intake manifold. and did an oil change...

feels much more responsive and i def notice a difference, so im going to keep going down the list. im going to def order some BND fluids for my Tranny/Diff/and Aces....after that a predator is in my future, till then, keep posted !!

I really Hate Mustangs, Especially Cobras
