99... how much can you get it for ?? Does it have to be customed ?? Since I"m lazy and crimping isn't really one of my specialty.

I have an */C and I didn't know about copper plugs... I thought they too use iridiums...
the TR55'* you stated is a good choice since it'* also a step colder... if you want AC Delcos ( same **** different label ) it'* 41-932.. gap it to 0.060.
What is the benefits of running copper other then it being cheaper.. I"m lazy and having to change the plugs more frequently from copper sounds like work to me... like I said before... I'm lazy

The Spark Plug Wires are custom fit for Bonneville'* from Taylor. E-mail me with your car Year/Model so I can give you a price w/ shipping for the spark plug wires. Also the color would help, there is black/blue/red.

As for the spark plugs, running NGK TR55'*, copper is also one heat range colder as you stated. But because it is copper, if the combustion chamber gets too hot (before detonation), the copper will melt and the gap will be closed and there is no more spark so that detonation can be prevented. The copper doesn't really melt every other week, its just say you maybe that one time there could be bad detonation and even before the knock sensors can react, the copper would have melted and saved you engine. I would rather spend a dollar on a copper spark plug and change it wherever it dies than have a piston explode or something that could cause bad damaged.

Hope that answers you questions.

Basically for all years of Bonneville the plugs are $49 shipped to your door. I can save you a couple of buck compared to the Grand Prix Store. And might be a good idea to support ADTR rather than the GP Store since what have they dont for you lately. These are the Taylor Spiro Pro'* that are custom fit to Bonneville'*. I know for sure Willwren that they are $49 for you. Anyone else just email me at

[email protected]

to be sure. If you guys need other parts, just email me there, I get lots and lots and lots.... Who needs JE Pistons? Or Cobeau seats w/ brackets/sliders made for Bonneville'* specifically..... yeah... Just let me know guys... Support your local shop that wants to help H-Bodies, not W-Bodies...

Default Bosch Blows

I ran bosh plugs and wires. I recently started experiencing a slight problem in my idol, so I replaced my bosch with the Split Fires that were originally in my car. The idol didn't get totally better ( I have a slight vaccum leak I need to find) but there was a definate difference. Now I am planning on going with the NGK plugs, should I replace the wires too or leave them? Oh and how about my Bosch O2 sensor? Should I just de-bosch my entire car?

I would recommend changing the wires the same time you do your sparkplugs.. as for the bosh O2 sensor.. I would replace that too... Will had used the o2 sensor from Bosh and I believe he said that he'* starting to run into problems again after replacing it with a bosh...

Bosch is now contracted with Ford for 80% of their parts needs. GM has moved away from Bosch in the last 3 years because they didn't want to share parts with their only major competitor. This might explain why the parts are going bad so quickly. Just a thought!
