Best Spark Plugs and Wires

Best Spark Plugs and Wires

Postby sickass72 [OP] » Apr 18 2012, 8:42am

Hey Guys,

Im coming close to 50k miles on Becky and since I am doing a bunch of upgrades on her, upon 50k, I will be replacing the plugs and wires. Anyone have any good suggestions on what the best spark plug and wire is? Ive heard that AC Delcos iridium and MSD 8.5mm wires are the best you can get.

Thanks, Anthony

Just replaced the OEM plugs in my 06 Z71 with AC Delco Iridiums. Worth the money, IMHO. Didn't change the wires but might consider doing it.

Love how easy these engines are to work on.

Didn't we JUST have this conversation last week? Oh yeah, we did. I'd encourage using the search function.
Plugs and Wires

But to answer the question, yes...stick with OEM plugs and wires all the way.
