Default Spark Plugs and wires

What intervals do you guys change your plugs and wires at?

Which ones do you use? I know that BOSCH = The Suck. Which performance adding ones do you guys like?

Just curious.

Thats good for stock rides. If your modded then a copper based plug such as the autolite line will be better although you have to change them a bit more often (every 30k or so). Lightly modded cars should look at autolite 605'* or 104'*. (1 and 2 heat range cooler respectively).

606 is stock heat range I think, 605 is 1 step cooler. I recommend them for anyone with light mods on a supercharged car. On an N/A car your not buliding up extra heat so stock range and gap are fine.

I should have researched more , I thought 606 were cooler than stock and I just put them in a week ago, I only run a 180 thermo and a FWI no real mods.If I change to a smaller pulley guess Ill change plugs again.605
