Default Plugs and wires,what's the most Bang for the Buck?

Hi Ya'll.. I'm new to the PT craze. Just bought a 2002 2.4L from a friend who's going to the Mission Field. Been reading all the threads about plug wires and plugs (etc.) Kind of confusing. Can anyone tell me what would be the best plug wire/plug combo at the best price? also recommend plug gap? I'm just going to drive it on the street and looking for the best combo to give her a little extra kick.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but if you've been reading the forums you should have picked up that people are changing plugs and wires to get rid of the crap that Chrysler gave us in the first place. From 1800 to 50K miles, owners have been having hesitation and miss problems and 99% of them have been cured by changing the plugs, wires or just re-gaping the plugs at a lower setting than we were originally told to. Any advantage in power from these changes would be negligible.

Keep reading the forums. The biggest bang from your buck will be air intake and exhaust.

Thanks!! Have already installed a K&N short Ram air intake and she's headed to the muffler shop tuesday for a flowmaster exhaust system.

Welcome, Pastor.
Agree 100% w/Crewzin. But don't neglect the plugs & wires, while they won't give you an extra kick, the stock ones over time will rob you of what's there. Champion Double platinum plugs - nearly any auto store and Crane wires (RaceAndStreet.Com) are a good choice. Magnecore wires, I believe are a little more $, are excellent.
Also, keep checking tire pressure - low pressure makes it sluggish & hurts gas mileage - I go a few PSI above numbers on sticker in the door.
