Looking for a glow plugs/relay/valve gasket kit

Hey everyone,
my first post, but I have been on the forum since I bought my first powerstroke (and diesel ever...june 2010). Really good info on here.
Anyways, couple of months ago I came across 1 or 2 threads one here about glow plugs/releay issues and people were recommending this kit. I can't remember everything that was in there, but it had good feedback and was pricey...around $400.
Can anyone tell me the brand, maybe where to get it or link to the discussion about this kit? I tried to search for a while, but I just can't find it. thanks

Glowplugs; Champions-$125 for 8
Relay; Napa-$30
Valve Cover Harness-Gasket kit-$140

All from napa, and it's all done for less than $300.

A lot of people will ONLY run Motorcraft glow plugs. Champion has been doing this for years in europe, and it gets a hell of a lot colder there than it does here. Their diesels may be easier to start, however. I can personally attest that Autolite's suck. The tips didn't break off in the head, they just didn't work. That being the case, I was buying glows and a Ford diesel tech was in the store at the same time. He testified that Autolite's were perfectely good plugs, as were AC Delco. He noted, however, that Champions were almost as good as the best, Ford plugs.
