ACDelco wires, or Napa Belden "Blue" wires, maybe more.

NGK, Autolite, ACDelco, or Champion plugs. Copper core seems to be the best for our supercharged engines.

Moved to General Chat. Plugs and wires don't add performance, they simply regain lost performance.

Many of the cars on the top-25 list here are still running stock ignition. Including coils.

Our cars seem to do better with copper core plugs. NGK or Champion in my book.

And NGK manufactures the AC Delco plugs. But I prever the 'V' grooved NGK TR55 plugs.

TR55'* are copper. Use them.

Use Belden Premium wires. They're just as good or better than the AC Delco'*, and they cost less.

FWIW, Autolites have been pretty good to me. In any event, either go copper or iridium if you can afford them. I pretty much change my plugs once a year for no good reason other than just to have new plugs, so I go copper.

Copper only if you plan to mod.
