Beldens. Or Belden Premium if you have the budget. MSD buys you nothing and Taylors are full of problems for us. Either Belden (from NAPA) or OEM AC Delco.

Problem solved. Changed my spark plugs and wires with ngkTR55IX (Iridium) and put on Belden Max wires (I think regular Beldens) from Napa. My dad helped me with the first couple, after that I got the hang of it. The ones in the back are a pain to get to, but since this is my first car I'm glad I learned it. Brought it to autozone, clear codes, then took it for a spin without any problems. Now just gotta get the Serpentine changed. Maybe that will be my project for next week. And the tranny flushed. And the AC recharged. Gotta get it done while I'm still making money this summer. Thanks for the help everyone and anyone gave. Nice to have a car that I can count on again.

I love how easy the plugs are to get at on the Bonnevilles. A full swap of 6 plugs is doable in half hour if the wires don't fight too hard. Trying to reach those rear plugs on a W-Body is pure hell.
