I've run NGK platinums, NGK V-power, and Autolites in mine. I've never 
noticed a huge difference, although the Platinums lasted the longest. Cost 
for performance, definately the V-power. I think they are about $1.50 each. 
BTW, the Autolites and V-powers have both lasted me 15K each set. I can't 
really justify the platinums, but to each his (or her) own.

I got away from the Bosch Platinums when I ran them in my 351C Ford van. The 
V-powers, even though cheaper, performed better. The Bosch fell off in the 
area of throtle response after about 4K. Apples and Oranges, I know.
