Default ignition question

Well guys, got a little cash, so i'm going to upgrade the ignition system in my '89. I have the stock icm, junkyard coil, factory wires, and really, really old plugs [i don't even want to know how old those rusted pieces of crap are]. I am going to upgrade to a type II icm [i know which donar car to steal it from], going to buy a cheapo aftermarket DIS coil [probably jegs knock off], MSD 8.5mm wires, and the ngk'* 2 heat range colder plugs [which part number is it again?, and who is the guy on here that works for napa that can hook me up with some]? Does this sound good to you guys? and if not, what should I change, or do you know a better product I should add in here. this is all on a budget too, I have $200 to spend. flowmaster next on the list!! yay!!

I'd go with the stock plugs, and.... the rest looks cool.

Default What is Type2

what is the type2 Igniton Module about? I have an 87 that I suspect crappy ignition and am about to change. If this is a better module I may want to do this also. Do you have any links or info on doing this?

2 heatranges on a non-supercharged car? No way. That'* way out of the realm of reality. One would be pushing it. You don't have a need for plugs that cold. Go with the TR55 at the coldest.

The stock AC-Delco ignition stuff works fine. Plugs, wires, coils..... millions of cars have them.
