Is this a new or new-er engine? I like AC Delco CR43TS plugs unless header clearance is an issue, then I use Autolite race plugs #135.

Agreed on the delco recommendation. I've also heard some unbelievable things about the Accel equivalent, but I've not had good luck with them. For your engine, I would skip the special irridium, platinum, unobtainium, or uranium plugs. A good ACdelco stock replacement is one of the best (and least expensive) plugs for your application.

I know this plugs can get to be a heated debate and everyone has there own opinion. I will toss you mine; I think I have tried about every plug that has hit the market. Tested them on stock, mild and wild. I have found the best luck with a gm performance engine to be a simple cheep champion. I know that sounds crazy but they have never failed me or my friends when the heat is on. I use Accel when I have to , just for clearance. But have never had luck with them lasting very long. Now if you are talking stock or mild build Gm, then delco all the way. Anything else just wont cut it. Stay away from, splitfire, bosh, and any other crazy electrode out there. They do have their place on the market but not with a gm mill. I donít want to steel your thread, but to anyone that gets my drift here I have a beef with accel. *** happened to them. I remember a day when they where the sh*& and now they are sh(*. There caps and rotors ect. Look like they are being made in crack houses. Öhope this helps .twist
