your non-supercharged. another good alternative is iridiums. they are 10 a piece, but you'll never have to replace them, typically good for 100K miles.

no need to buy ngk iridium for 10bucks each. buy the delco 41-101 part #, for 6 bucks. those are made by ngk anyway.

I'm going to assume thst the Bonnie has a 3800 L36 Series II... And not the Supercharged L67?

If so

Either get the NGK TR55... or the NGK TR55 GP<--- Platinum.. I think they are $2.60-$3.00 each...

The NGK TR55 is in the $1.70 each area..

And Autolite Professional wires are good... The Beldens from Napa are also good..

NGK TR55

I recently upgraded my plugs to these NGK TR55 and I realized how much power my car had lost with poor spark plugs. When I put my car into drive on a level surface my car would not move, with these new plugs my car can pull itself up to 25mph without me pushing on the gas pedal.

For $12 I was amazed at how well they worked and will be replacing them every year to keep my car in top condition.

my driveway has a little hill at the begining which has a lot to do with it, my friends and I like to see how fast we can get just coasting down my driveway, I was more amazed at how much power I had lost from poor spark plugs since my car would only move before if I pushed on the gas pedal.
