Stock/manufacturer spec. Most of the high end wires only do good in a racing motor. Plugs wise, a spark is a spark, unless again you're racing.

NGK , Champion , Autolite . No need to get the expensive platinum or iridium tipped plugs .

Autolite is a good choice for plug wires . Not horribly expensive and a good quality piece .

yep you want oem type plugs and wires. some plugs can destroy your engines due to different heat ranges. some manufatcures make there plugs universal so that they can work on other cars. that means that the heat range of the plug colud be to hot or to cold for your engine causing detination or pinging.

i got champion OEM style plugs today and some nice wires, I forget the brand but they were the ones rated best for my truck. The response felt better because after looking at the plugs they really needed to be changed.

Yeah, when I did my swap I just went with stock replacement champions. I did pop for the Taylor wires though, nothing exotic just a nice, quality wire and they are blue

My plugs didn't have a ton of miles, but the gaps were opening up a bit.

Glad you got it swapped and can feel better throttle response!
