rapidfires supposedly are good, i had them in mine but took them out when i was having misfire issues (turns out it wasnt the plugs it was the wires) id just run the standard ones, they came with it from the factory and you cant argue with factory

If you're gonna go ACDelco (which is a good way to go), just get the standards. Our engines don't seem to care for Platinums, and the RapidFires are reportedly a waste of money

NGK or AC Delco. NGK makes the Delco plugs.

Moving to 92-99.

Price wise though, AC Delco.Don't waste your time with the Rapid Fires.

NGK'* are generally cheaper than AC Delco'*. I also use the same plugs in both of my Bvilles. The TR55 is a fantastic design and lasts quite a long time. (NGK V-Power TR55). Gap at .060" unless you're supercharged with a smaller pulley.

Go to the back counter at NAPA and ask for NGK TR55 (that'* the stock number). They'll have them in stock.
