Default Which plugs and wires?

I'm going in to Napa to get some plugs and wires for my '07 base model.

I'm getting autolite platinum plugs and the good Belden plug wires.

Although they may not be the best choices, is there anything horribly wrong with these choices that they should not be used?

Autolite's are a good plug and the platinum should last a long time. As far as the Belden wires.......

Are Belden Plug Wires, good wires? - Car Forums and Automotive Chat

.....and they smell good too.

I heard a good smelling spark wire can add 10-15% more HP and increase MPG by 25%

New plugs and wires are installed... the job was crazy easy and the car runs a lot smoother now. I'm hoping to pick up an mpg or two.

Cheapest under built poop I've ever seen. When I got my Granatelli wires I was amazed at the difference, the stock ones looked like toy wires.

Many people have a problem with the Bosch+4 platinum plugs ,but im in love with them. And i also recommend the Accel universal 8mm plug wires. You'll have to cut them to the right length, but its no biggie, and they only run around 30$ so ...bingo
