Default plug wires and plugs

what would be the best and cheapest brand to use? willing to spend a good hunk possibly.

i'm dropping a new head on my d16y8 so all i'll need then is just new plugs and plugwires.
please let me know the best to use. as long as it's not bosch hahaha.


and also: if you know where to get a cheap head gasket, exhaust gasket, intake mani gasket, and all the other gaskets that go with the head let me know. i'd like to try and find em in a set. i think my best bet is o'reilys for 119 though.

use the NGK plugs that are recommended on your timing belt cover. They are the V-power plugs and are cheap. Don't waste your money with platinum. Use OEM spark plug wires. If your engine doesn't have anything major, you don't need anything more than OEM.

use your money on something else.

The stock ignition is good for quite a bit of power (I believe 500+hp), so you're just wasting your money with aftermarket plugs and wires (unless you want colored wires for bling)

actually, factory plugs and wires perform better than any other crap out there, it reduces misfiring and has the smoothest hp curve of any of them.

yeah i'ma just go with OEM plugs and wires.

my theme i decided on is the green color i have on my car with gold rims and whatnot so i'll probablly just get some and wrap the wires in gold tape haha.
make my own bling.

Yeah, I wouldn't recommend wrapping the wires in tape, it'll look gaudy, and I can bet you'll take it off within a month.
