Did we say they were?

And did you want to know what you could run in the SSEi?

There are several out there that will cross over to both engines as the heads are just about the same with a couple of exceptions... The PCV system passages are built into the 95 Vin 1 heads as well it uses roller pivots... Both of these heads can accept the same plug...

I believe that the stock Plug for this car( 1995 ) was a 41-601, and the 95 L36 used a 41-606 ...

The Vin C, Vin L, Vin 1 92-95, Vin K 95-current, and Vin 1 Series II can all use the TR55 plugs... There are a series of others that will easily cross to the diffrent applications as well..

As for factory, No they are not the same plug... The 3800 C'* used the R44LTS6 and the R45LTS6...

Your 95 should have had the AC Delco 41-601

And after using the TR55 and the AC Delco Rapidfire 14( Platinum, you don't want that in your boosted application ) I will never go back to the stock plug..

Well I ended up going with the NGK TR55 plugs, now I need to get a set of wires and I might go with the Bosch since there on sale, 15 % off at Canadian Tire and I'm a sucker for a deal.

whats the big deal with fram oil filters?
The big deal with the fram oil filter is the cardboard ends holding the filter together. The cardboard seems to fall apart and may cause rocker arm noise of which the filter has failed and no longer filtering the oil.

I think the TR55 were the right choice for the plugs ELMACHOGERACHO, it was the Bosch Plug Wires which were debatable.

Thanks
