I went with NGK Iridiums at 93,000. It idled smoother and just ran a little better. I would go with Taylor Vertex Spiro Pros or 409 race wires. They are a very high quality product. Ive had alot of experience with them in high performance applications. Its not like your going to gain anything from wires but i replaced mine as well, just felt better with a quality product on there.

I have the MSD 8.5mm super conductor wires. These things are great...better spark, less interference. Another recommendation would be the Taylor THUNDERVOLT's.

Checker/Shucks/Kragen depending on where you live. You can check the price at their online store and see if it would be cheaper.

I'd almost bet that any auto parts store can get you NGK plugs cheaper than you can buy AC Delcos at a dealer, even with an employee discount.

If your ignition system is stock, you won't see any gains with aftermarket wires, OEM delcos are perfect.

 

A lot of guys (myself included) run Taylor or MSD wires 'just because we can' :D

Are these wires the correct Taylor wires?

 

Thanks

<H1 class=pdetail-top>Sorry, for a 06 2500hd w/ 6.0. I ordered these plugs from Summit, because they said it would be a 2 week wait on the Thunder volt. My truck is stock, so I assumed these would be fine.

Thanks

Steve

Funny this comes up. I just spoke to my mechanic today and he suggested Belden wires and Bosch platinum plugs for my 06 6.0.

 

Told me to change em and he'd check to see if I needed any other repairs or replacements elsewhere. Mine shakes a little at idle. :lol:

... there seems to be questions about plugs on this thread, as well as questions about wires...

 

... the best spark plug for your stock GM engine is the OEM AC Delco plugs... don't use anything else ....!!!!

That is what I used, the Plug wires were probably origianal w/ 70K. How often do they need to be changed? Both irridium plugs and wires?

 

I must say, the wires were shot. They easily seperated from the boot w/ a modest tug. It did not help that my engine from Previous owner was caked w/ mud and the metal sheild around the boots had alot of dirt in it making it more difficult to remove. But still I was dissapointed in how easily they broke. I am hoping these new ones are eaiser. I added some lube, not sure if it will help the next time.
