How much are you guys/gals paying for your O2 Sensors and Spark Plugs. I believe I can get them cheaper. I can package NGK'* and a few other brands, give me an idea of how much you pay for them and perhaps I can get better prices. Worth a try.

this is for hector....

I for one feel more comfortable buying from one supplier that I know is quality, and I dont think that I am the only one that would buy all of my Bonneville parts needs from you. If you carried the sparkplugs, you have at least one person who would buy them from you once this weather gets a little warmer and a little more $$$ comes in.

Hector let us know about the plugs.

Because I'll probably get Taylor Cables, NGK V-Power Plugs (if you have them) and an intake in a month or 2. I'll just get all the parts from one place. It'll be easier for me cuase im ususally busy.

Sounds good guys. Which NGK'* do you want me to package together and put on the store? The V-Power, TR55'*, TR6'*, etc. That will help me get the right ones and not waste space. =)

Ok I read the thread and im still confused?

I just day before yesterday took out my bosch plats and they looked corroded with a little oil around the threads of them. I was worried but a mechanic friend said because of the compression in my engine it was ok. I put in bosch plat +2'* (Kinda a splitfire ripoff)

Are these bad? Should I take them out and put in plats from Delco? Or Non plats from NGK? I need some direction?! =P Thanks.
