His wires are ORIGINAL? Make him get new stockers, at least. AC Delco stockers should be great for yours. If the SSEi has any knock, consider some NGK TR55'*. The stock plugs are different on the two engines, I think.

Four years is long enough for a set of wires, IMO.

Do not use platinums of any kind in the ssei. Being stock I would recommend AC Delco replacements and not worry about colder heat ranges. Change the wires also with stock replacements. Make sure you check your gap before putting them in even if they say pre gapped.
