Plug and play replacements for my original copper/nickel motorcrafts?
I am partial to NGK's too, but motorcraft is quite a bit cheaper.
The finewire Motorcraft plugs (AGSF32FMF6) are acceptable. Your car came with platinum plugs from the factory, not copper/nickel.

I am a motor craft fan when it is to spark plugs.

Not to doubt you, but the one I pulled looked awfully widely gapped and the tip didn't look fine, it looked like a copper plug?
I will be posting pics when i change them..

He is right, your ignition system requires dual platinum as minimum, so that's what Ford put in.
I use in mine now NGK fine tip iridium with platinum disc welded on ground strap (NGK Laser Iridium).

Do these finewire Motocraft plugs are best in quality or there is better option available?

1. Motorcraft plugs are just average, overpriced plugs. They buy the plugs from real manufacturers (Autolite, NGK) pre-labeled with Motorcraft logo.
2. Finetip Motorcraft are platinum finetip (not iridium, that is the best) and they don't have the platinum ground strap needed by ignition by spark packs - they are made for coil-on-plug ignition.
3. For coil pack-style, Dual platinums where needed because 1/2 of plugs fire "backwards", when coil packs are used. The only finetip that satisfies that is the NGK Laser Iridium.

I am not sure what style of ignition a 2006 Vulcan has.

You can use the NGK e-catalog for selection, it will say if Laser Iridium or regular Iridium IX are needed.

Bosch platinums. Been about 50k, still runs like a top.

Thanks, didn't know that about Vulcans.
So definitely they need either dual platinum or iridium with platinum on ground strap to prevent ground erosion on the "reverse" fired plugs.
