I still have the original AC Delco platinun spark plugs, the car runs great, but I've never taken them out in the almost 6 years I've had the car, so I wanted to check on them to see how they were looking and make sure non were stuck. I also wanted to have spare wires in case any broke, so I ordered these JDM Speed wires from the jungle website, which according to the review are a rebrand MSD wire, and a very reasonable price at $31.99 USD.
Note: these are from Amazon.com, not the equivalent on Amazon.ca, which had different reviews and some people said come in a bag, no box.

The wires are quite thick compared to stock and appear to be well made.

While I was at it I figured I might as well change the spark plugs, so I went with NGK V-Power 2238 TR5. The gaps were all too small so I regapped them to .040" as per the manual.

The old wires all came off without breaking, though they required some twisting and pulling especially on the spark plug end.

The old plugs came out very easily, here is one bank and they looked decent considering the age.

Stock wires.

New wires, they are a little bit longer than stock but loop nicely with no clearance issues. Perhaps they would have a clearance issue with headers?

They have a nice upgraded look.

The car runs about the same as it did before.
