Acdelco plugs, whatever come in from factory and wires go with any good name, I use ngk ones or the belden ones from napa... all quality stuff and both sets come with lifetime warranty... For me to go out and spend big money on factory wires where the aftermarket ones from either set I just mentioned are as good or better with a lifetime warranty.... well you get my drift lol

I used the ngk ones on my G6 and they are very nicely built, can't go wrong

I dont know if I messed something up but when I put on some AC delco I noticed a significant loss of power. But knowing me I probably did something wrong

Ac delco is reputable and highly recommended on most/all replacement GM parts

I'd say you had to have done something wrong. A simple replacement or plugs and wires should not cause a lott of power.

Its posible you may have accidently got a wire mixed up with one of the other ones so might not be firing on the right cylinders.
