    What type of wires and plugs

    I was wondering what wires and plugs to put into my 02 vette with an LS1. I was leaning toward MSD for the wires and Nology for the plugs. I don't know anything about Nology. Does anybody have any knowledge about the performance of Nology? Are there better wires and plugs that anyone could suggest that are not priced out of the stratusphere. I did read that Nology says that the silver plugs are better that iridium, what's up with that claim? Please respond so I can make an informed decision. Thanks

    What type of wires and plugs

    Stay with factory GM wires. I know of some guys who have had problems with aftermarket wires which don't perform well and give them codes. Use NGK TR55 plugs.

    I've read bosch platnium plus 4 plugs are good, and claim they increase power a hair.

    Thanks, but do the Bosch do well in an LS1 vette. I am looking for hands on knowledge. I've seen different types of OEM wires which are the best?

    MSD wires and the ACDelco Iridium plugs or TR55's. I like the ACDelco one's myself.

    Thanks everyone for the advice. I opted for the MSD's and the NGK TR55 Iridium's. It took me forever to get to some of the plugs. I even pulled one of the wires apart trying to get it off. If it takes someone an hour to do something, it takes me 3. So far it's runs like a champ. I can tell a difference in the response. Thanks again.

    I personally like Magnecor Wires, but the MSD are also good. Right now I have the ACDelco Iridium plugs
