Moved to 2000-2005. This is a tune-up topic, not a Performance topic.

Welcome Boss...lol

AC Delco/Belden/Autolite Professional are all good quality lifetime wires.

AC Delco/NGK TR55/Autolite plugs are all good sturdy known good plugs. Bosch plugs are known to not work well in a waste spark system such as ours. They actually have that information on their website.

Is there an 8mm wire for our cars?

Our cars I believe came with 8mm wires.

8mm just means it has more insulation. It doesn't necessarily mean that there'* any more power capability at all.

Most of the quickest cars on this Forum run Belden Premiums from NAPA. Thicker wires only make it harder to shove them in the retainers.

Default Bosch Fusion Platinum Iridium Plugs

Okay I KNOW that I'm probably going to get hammered here for actually putting this on the forum, but the Bosch +4 Fusions Rock. Combo of Platinum and Iridium.

I always loved the regular Bosch +4s and they DID have more performance, but degrade over about 7-12 months. So I've switched to the Fusions. Only had them for 2 months so far, but it is MUCH better than the NGK TR55s that everyone here swears by.

As for wires, I actually use Splitfire 8mm wires. PN: WS8900 and $54.99 from SparkPlugs.Com. I'm going to post an article with pics on these wires here soon.

If you don't have the $60 to spend on the plugs, I know it'* a lot, then those other ones are probably good enough. You didn't mention price, you said what were the BEST plugs and wires.

Me, I spent 180.00 on two Raybestes Brute Stop Rotors and another $50 on Raybestes Brute Stop Pads.. (www.rockauto.com)

So, I don't use the most cost effective solution.. I use the best solution I can afford. It'* been pointed out to me here that I spend too much for this stuff and don't consider people who are mainly interested in saving money. So, take it for what it'* worth..

I think Bonneville Club members have a 5 or 10% discount available from SparkPlugs.Com and 5% from RockAuto.Com, but don't remember. PM me if you need the info... (How'* that for saving money!)
