For our cars I would definetely stick with Delco judging by the results people are having, including myself. Bosch is just meant for a different level of perforamcne and engine, not for kids "hot-rodding" a 3800 V6.

Bosch is intended more for high performance / higher revving engines such as BMW, Porsche, Mercedes, Etc. which is why they all come with Bosch plugs and wires stock, and is also as I mentioned before, the reason many NASCAR race teams, and 99% of Indy and Formula 1 race teams depend on them every week to win race after race. Why? Because they are NOT racing little 3800'* around the track, they are racing high-performance 600HP motors from GM, Ford, Chrysler, Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Etc..

Now go put AC-Delco plugs and wires in your brand new BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Audi. or even Formula 1 race car and watch how far you get. lol.

Once again, I'm not trying to start a fight here, but sometimes you gotta look at both sides of the fence.

I think Delco is stock in everything GM isnt it? I know Chrysler uses Champion stock (although they are slowly switching over to Bosch since the Dailmer merger). Dont believe me? Pop the hood on any post Dailmer-Chrysler vehicle 97-98+ and take a look at various parts such as the Brake Power Booster, etc.. You'll see the Bosch sticker opposed to the previous Mopar / A1'* (Looks like the Germans might just make Chryslers buyable after all, but they've still got a loooooong way to go before I trade my GM for a Chrysler).

Ford uses Autolite, anything Japanese (Acura, Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki) is most likely NGK (Which are a damn good plug by the way), and anything German is most likely Bosch.

I'd be curious to see what these new young car companies such as Kia and Daewoo are running? Anyone know?
