Default NGK Plugs/ACDelco Wires

Just picked up a set of NGK TR55 V-Power Copper Plugs.
From reading Tech Info article/posts I am assuming my correct
gap should be .055?

Thinking about getting a set of ACDelco wires to install also...
Parts store informed me they are now Lifetime Warranty....

Any recommendations on wires?
I want to use original plug hangers on side rockerarm covers.


TIA.

AC delco or Autolight professional wires are both typically lifetime and should fit in the stock wire holders. I believe the Napa Belden'* are also the same size as stock, but have no experience if they are.

Gap your plugs to .060 because you are NA, SC cars when modding would start gapping smaller. The reason for the smaller gap is to help run cooler and keep the spark from being blown out with more air from a different SC pulley.

I have had good luck with these wires for the last few years

I like the spiral core part (keeps resistance low). I keep my motor clean and these wires look as good now as they did a couple years ago.

(If money was no object I probably would love the look of the MSD wires) Ohhhh Red, pretty.
