Yup I have napa silicone plug wires on my GT with NGK plugs. Works great, and a lifetime replacement warranty.

Thats good enough for me, as long as they are definitely better than the stock wires, and there are no major problems with them. Thanks alot.

The NGK plugs are Iridium plugs. I got the colder set, stock number for them is 2315. The part number for them is LZTR6AIX-13

I gapped mine at .030 and she gets about 28mpg.

OK, Thanks!! So now we're going to a .030 gap over the factory .050-? I was told .040 so thats what I'm running now-will the Irridiums gapped at .030 help smooth the engine out for me you think? are the NGKs you recommended indeed for the H O Turbo engine-(1 step colder)? Thanks Again!!

Yes those are the right plugs. Also, I gapped mine at .030 because my car had the 5500 rpm miss, after lowering to .040 it was better but, still present, then went down to .030 and its good now.

I've been running mine gapped at .035 after blowing a plug on the race track gapped at .040. Seems to do the trick and runs a tiny bit cleaner on 100 octane at that gap for some reason....
