I like the NGK plugs myself, infact they are in every one of my rides. Wires... stick to good quality. Probably a BorgWarner or Bosch set from the parts store would be sufficient.

I'd pick up a PCV, fuel filter, and an air filter while you're there. Also may as well get a new cap and rotor if you're going to do plugs an' wires. :shake:

IMO bosch sucks...but thats just me...

I'm running the plain old delco wires, with the 99 cent delco copper core plugs, with the delco cap and rotor. Its all been on there about 2 years now and it runs as smooth as ever. Unless I had some kind of drag strip supercharged monster that stuck out of my hood, I wouldn't even look at aftermarket ignition.

From experience and in speaking with GM mechanics, I believe their are benefits from a better set of wires and this benefit only increases as the mods pile on. I do however recommend sticking with the stock plugs. They are designed for our engines (vortec) and do a fine job. As mentioned before, unless you have a blown application, I would not go through the trouble of changing plugs. and anybody who has changed plugs before on our trucks know how much of a bitch those 2 up against the firewall can be.... :crazy:

Stick with the AC plugs, Bosch wires are decent and they will be in stock most likely. As far as the cap and rotor try to get some with brass inserts, they are better and last longer.
