Napa Belden wires are a good choice.

I have AC Delco OEM wires (brand new) and Autolite 606 plugs on my GS.

400 to have it done? Is that a typo or are you paying someone 400 dollars to change plugs and wires? I run the 8mm Beldens from Napa. If you tell them its for a 2000+ they give you 7mm for some reason so i always tell them it'* a 95 and i get the 8mm wires.

I got the 7mm ones just so they would fit in the retaining clip that goes over the supercharger. Another tip.

You guys are lucky and got those, and the 2002 plus it seems like did not. We get cheap plastic separators that plug into an equally unattractive bracket.... So under the snout we go.

I would be disgusted if a shop charged $400 to change plugs. Definitely a do-it-yourself job.
