AC Delco, and no other. Part numbers are in Techinfo for each year. www.gmpoartsdirect.com is the source.

As far as I know, the only GM (AC Delco) and NGK link is a contract for spark plugs. NGK OEM'* the GM plugs.

I'm not aware of any other association between them including O2 sensors.

I'm not sure.......I know the Series 1 and 2 don't like the Bosch. What'* your highway mileage if you keep your foot out of it?
