Hello all,

I was wondering what everybody thinks is the best spark plug to use?

I can't speak specifically for the 2.7 or 3.0 twin turbos but with Ford's ecoboost engines, the original equipment Motorcraft plugs have been the best choice.

Ford have had a lot of experience dealing with misfiring 3.5 liter twin turbo engines. One of the issues has been the spark plugs with large gaps firing in the very high pressure turbo engines. To counteract this  Ford have reduced gaps to between  .028" and .031" instead of the .056" gaps of old. The plugs were also changed to iridium ones. The 2.7 liter twin turbo is now spec'd with the iridium SP542 plug and gap between .028" and .031". Here is a link to what these look like from Rockauto: http://www.rockauto....3435292&jsn=394  

 

Best to use Ford's experience with these engines and use their recommended plugs.

 

Good luck.

The 3 liter twin turbo  engine also uses the same Motorcraft SP542 iridium spark plug as the 2.7.
