Just curious, why ask what plugs to use if you already ordered plugs? Lol, just caught me as strange.


I'd also agree with the others above, stock engine tune up = stock plugs. They'll probably last the rest of the life of the car assuming you're not changing out the originals way early.

Just chiming in.
Can never go wrong with AC Delco replacement parts, as those are OEM (factory spec) replacement parts with GM's brand.

From my experience, NEVER use BOSCH plugs (wires are fine, never plugs).

I use NGK for two reasons:
- Coming from Rockauto, they are crazy cheap. Granted, some times you can score deals on AC Delco plugs.
- I have pulled out factory original AC Delco plugs and found they also have NGK markings (meaning the plugs are NGK, rebranded as AC Delco).

I have been using NGK in multiple GM v6 cars, 100% happy.
