I decided to put some money into tuning up and starting some basic mods on my engine. Here is my list thus far:

CAI:
Mustang V6 Cold Air Intake Kit at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

Spark Plugs:
Bosch Platinum/Iridium +4

Spark Plug Wires:
eBay Motors: 94-96 97-98 FORD MUSTANG V6 8.2mm RED SPARK PLUG WIRES (item 160211069310 end time Feb-28-08 11:07:46 PST)
Would these be good to get? I dont really want to spend $100 for the Livewires.

Change Oil and Filter
Change Fuel Filter

Anymore suggestions?

Already bought them, is it really worth a trip back to replace them? I used them in my old car, seemed to work fine.

I just relized the wires were for a different model Mustang.. looking for some more.

I found these:

MSD 8.5mm Red Super Conductor Spark Plug Wires - JEGS

However thats a bit higher priced than Ebay. Cant find any on ebay for a 03 V6. Anyone have some suggestions or should I buy these?

Ya I didint at first but I caught it. I am going to replace my Fuel Filter anyways, so I will see if they have Autolite or Motorcraft at the local shop. Whats the price difference of Bosch and these?

I found these wires, they are MSD Brand

2001-04 Mustang 3.8L V6
Boots: 45°

Shipped, $74... Sound good? I have heard some good things about MSD.

Prices for all these so far:

Plugs: $53
CAI: $75
Wires: $74

Total: $202

Been researching... seems Copper plugs are better for performence than plat plated plugs? True?

If that is so, im taking these $53 plugs back and getting some Copper Autolite/Motorcraft.

copper is better, but platinum will last longer. So if you dont want to change your plugs as often get the platinum. Either way performance wise you prolly wont see a difference between them.
