Default NGK spark plugs

OK, when I first got the car, I went bosch for my spark plugs: Bad idea!! Boy did they suck. So I switched to Delco platinum which was gapped at .040in for some reason. They are in the car now and seem to be working fine. However, I want NGK because I've heard alot of good things about them. What kind of spark plug wires should I get? I have bosch wires now, and I don't think its a good idea since bosch screwed me up before. Do you think I should get taylor from the grandprix store? Will they fit my car? Or should I get the customizable msd wires?

I'm going with the Taylor wires next month. I've also had the same damned shitty experience with the Bosch plugs, and now a Bosch O2 sensor. Whatta POS!

I'm not sure about ALL the delco'* and NGK'*, but I know the Delco Irridium plugs are NGK! I'm running NGK in mine, and love 'em.

Only problem with the Taylor 8mm wires is the color choice. Red, blue, red, blue.
hmmmmm......

Once I get my 0-60 and 1/4 mile ET, I will judge whether or not I want to race. LOL

I installed the NGK Iridiums and Taylor 8mm wires from the grandprixstore in my car a month or so ago. I am very happy with the performance of both. Th ewires were a perfect fit on the engine and the plug gap (hair less than .060) is right around what my engine is supposed to take (per the liittle slip on the radiator). I paid whatever the list price is on the GPstores site.

You'll probably beat me to them, too. Next month for me. If you do beat me, LMK how you like 'em. Somebody else around here said they really made a difference, but of course that was probably a high-mileage swap from stock wires.

Uh... guys... I could probably get those Taylor Spark Plug Wires for cheaper for you. Not quite understanding the ADTR is a performance shop, not just for Bonneville'*, Crown Victoria'*, and WRX'*... That'* why the website has lots of products that are going up.

And on spark plugs, you should run NGK TR55'* on your */C vehicles since they are copper and if your car detonates its the spark plug that dies and melts first and doesn't allow detonation to occur somewhere else. And the NGK'* are better... You guys should be running copper plugs on you */C cars... Not iridium or +4'* or something else. I always run copper plugs on my cars since it is a nice saftey feature and they are cheap to replace.
