    Maintaining the Trans Am!

    Im in the process of giving my recently purchased 99 T/A a full tune-up and this site has made everything so easy for me...its amazing the information you find on here!
    So far ive replaced my Fuel Filter, Differential fluid change (Mobil-1 Synthetic gear lube) and Oil change (Also Mobil-1). My next adventure will be the spark plugs and wires now ive done some searching and have found:

    one person says 8.5 mm MSD wires.

    And another recomends NGKTR55 sparkplugs gapped at .050

    Before i go out and buy these i just want to make sure if this is the best to put in the Bird. My car is stock and I plan on keeping it that way
    so just wanted to get everyones input before i go to buy these.

    Thanks!!!

    By the way.....Sea Foam... what is it? how does it work? and is it good for the car?......once again thanks!!!!

    if u got a little extra $, i would go with the tr55-IX plugs. They are iridium and will last longer, because we all know (and u r soon gonna find out) how much fun it is changing the plugs on our cars. MSD wires are perfect! OOO and be careful not to break the dam ECT sensor near the #1 plug. I broke mine last year and my car ran like absolute shit.
