Anything other that stock wires. MOPAR Performance wires at raceandstreet.com are good.

^^^^ Agree. Stock champion plugs aren't bad, platinum or irridium just last longer (no platinums in a turbo).

Just got in on a deal at advance auto parts(still active coupon but you must order through the website but you can pickup in store if you prefer)

1-Magstar Racing Racing Super Inductor Wires Part No: 23-4040B $40.29

4-Champion Iridium Resistor Plug Part No: 9403 $35.96


Total came to $76.25 but use code BIG25 and get $25 0ff for a total of $51.25

These wires look really good and a lot of racing people use them around here. They are supposed to hold up to heat much better than most wires. They also fit very good and snap in tight.

I have the Champion irridiums and was disappointed in that they require you to grind down a socket to fit down in the park plug well because they put the "nut" too close to the tip - when you get them you'll see.
I bought a socket off eBay and ground it down myself.
Just like the NGK irridiums were....
