Default two qustions about upgrades

I am going to get the stage 3 intese package. I am replacing my stock plug wires. What should I get to replace them? Is stock good? What brand? where to get them? Intence sells some, should I get those?

should I be raplacing my coil pack as well? should I get these, or is stock fine?

OK. I talked with Eric on Saturday, and to his knowledge, nobody has installed the Pacesetter Headers on a Bonneville, even though the aftermarket sellers have listed them to fit. Pacesetter'* own site does not list them as a fit for the Bonnie and will not until they have definitve information that assures them they will.

If it were me, I would contact the w-body store (or wherever you end up getting them from) about their return policy if they end up not fitting.

Like any other headers developed for the Grand Prixs, there is a good chance they will fit, even if some slight modifications are required.

what plug wires should I get? I've heard that unless you go super extreme, stock coil packs and plug wires are fine. any input?

Stock coils and wires work great. If they're in good working order, leave them be. If you're getting the level 3 package, you don't have to worry about headers, SLP'* come with it.

I was going to get pacesetters instead of the SLP'*. Save myself a few hundred. They have got good reviews but nobody has put them on a bonne accourding to the forum. I don't mind trying. I'm told they will fit. Even if I have to do a little modding.
