Default plugs

Changed my plugs yesterday and did remove the STB because it was windy and cold out and didn't want to stay out long.
Took about 45 min. complete with cold feet.

These engines are one of the easiest ones there is GM wise to work on. The 3800SC in my Fiero only takes about thirty minutes to do a complete tune up plugs, wires and an oil change. With the 2.8l in there it required unbolting the engine cradle and about two hours to do the same job. Gotta love 3800 engines. Dan

Use NGK or AC Delco Plugs AC Delco or Belden wires

That'* what we've found works best.
I stuck with AC Delco wires and plugs simply because it was reasonably priced, plus I have heard nothing but bad things about Bosch.
