Bumper to Bumper carry the NGKs but they said the same that they are designed for four cylinder cars mainly the ricers. They recommended AC Delco Platinums or an AC Delco of some sort.

Thats what I had installed at the time. However, when I need new plugs I intend to go top of the line and get the Iridiums

However AC Delco is NGK

Ok but AC Delco doesn't market an iridium plug, only platinum. I wonder why. You can buy the best NGK iridiums online at NGK.com. They are showing a price of $11.71 for a 92 ssei.
