Default Spark Plugs and Wires

I know this has been talked about a lot as I've read a lot about this topic on this site. I just want to know what other people are using and what they think about it. I've already done this on my NA 2003 Limited PT. Now I need to do it for my turbo 2003 Dream Cruiser.

I found some NGK Iridiums for $30 and Granatelli wires for $50 on The Granatelli wires on Granatelli's site are over $100. Does anyone know why? Is this a good set up for the turbo and is this a good price?

The only upgrade I have now is a Mopar Stage 1.

Like I said above I've done this job on my NA already. What are the differences to do this job on my turbo? I've read that if you have the plastic intake you don't need to remove it. I still have an alluminum one. Do I need to remove it?

Thanks in advance.

Since your question is for your Turbo, I've moved your post to the Turbo section to receive answers from the guys that should know.

No need to remove intake on a turbo - a swivel plug socket should do for the aluminum, a swivel socket and another swivel and it can be done without removing intake (I've done both - I have plastic, daughter & son-in-law have alum.)

Manufacturer sites are more expensive so they don't undercut their dealers - If you go to K&N site, their filters are more expensive there, too..

Irridium ought to last longer - I gapped using a block of wood - Tapping on the "arm" to close, hooking the arm on the edge and ppulling to widen - avoid getting near that ting center. I gapped at 0.038.
