Do not use Platinum. Get the NGK copper plugs.

WHY can't he use Platinum, he doesn't have a turbo. Platinum's are fine, been using the Double Platinum for almost the life of the car. As long as they're for the PT, use em. Champion has #7440/7570 that work fine and last a heck of a long time.

Platinum is fine for a non-turbo. The NGK v power is a great plug too.

To be honest, I tried the Belden Blue plug wire set, and they wouldn't set (click) into place. Then I tried to adjust the length of the wires in relationship to the collars. That was impossible; they wouldn't move at all. So I went out and bought a set of Bosch wires, and they clicked in perfectly.

I noticed that when I changed mine. No click and very easy to pull off. I went with the bosch also.

x3...tried the NAPA Belden blue wires on mine and they were very difficult to get to click on...one wouldn't go on at all...the terminals were too far up in side the boot...molded in and impossible to adjust. Went back to NAPA and told them about the problem...they gave me another set and this time the terminals looked to be in the proper position...took 'em home and installed them and they clicked on fine and have been OK ever since. Was rather dismayed about this...usually NAPA and Belden are quality stuff.

Ive been using the Bosch Platinum 2 and 4's in my car since I bought it 5 years ago. First I used the 2's after reading about them on the forum. The car ran so much better than it did before changing them. I did the wires too at that time. My next set of plugs was the 4's only because the parts store didnt have the others I wanted. Again it ran great with those plugs. Im planning on replacing them again this week with a set of the 4's. Rockauto has them for under $4 each, and there is a $3 mail in rebate on them. Each plug will be under a dollar each. Cant beat that price!
