I personnaly run NGK plugs and NAPA Belden Premium wires. A lot of Series 1 V6 owners run those here. I'd also recommend Autolite plugs.

Stay the HELL away from BOSCH ANYTHING for our cars! Personal experience and from what everyone else says on here.

Good luck!

General concensus is that NGK TR55s or AC Delco plugs are good. Stay away from Bosch as many here have had bad results with them for our 3800s. Belden wires or AC Delco.
