if you look @ rockauto.com
There is almost no price difference between bosch and motorcraft. Motorcrafts are ~ $10 each

I did a search on the forum and you see motorcraft reccomended overtop of any other brand.

Yes, but you Yanks get stuff for cheap compared to what we pay here in Canada. Seems we pay double for almost anything. Although I haven't actually phoned Ford yet for a price, I'm scared to. Everything so far I've phoned for a price has been outa this world in price for my truck. Today, I phoned for a price on reman cyl heads. They told me $1100 each. I had to change my shorts after that.

lol

look at my location
quebec canada

You are right you can't buy anything for auto parts up here, our dealer prices are still double compared to what the average Joe pays off the street across the line.

I have all my stuff shipped in the US and go pick it up and when i cross i pay the tax on it.

Oh, ha ha ha. I didn't even look. I never go into the states. I'm even a mechanic and with the little discount the Dealer gives us it's still way too much money.

Ya consumer prices, taxes you name all more $$.

If you decide to go with bosch you can get them $10.50 each from

autopartsway.ca

the prices are comparable to our friends across the border and orders over $75 you get free ground shipping. They don't carry much diesel stuff though

I would go with the motorcraft ZD-11's

I have heard that the Bosch plugs swell more, thus breaking more when replacing them....

Maybe Autolite do, maybe the Bosch ones do....I would definitly buy the MOtorcraft ones then. Motorcraft are not Autolite.
