    what do the TR55's come gapped as? so for stock motor with bolt-ons you recommend gapping at .040?

    I also heard lots of people with the NGK's and MSD wires

    They are supposed to come gapped .060 BUT dont rely on that CHECK EVERY PLUG and yes .060 is too large a gapp- GM actually has a bulletin about this and reccomends a .040 gapp - my plaugs are gapped .035 and my car only has a catback and a lid- runs excellent.

    Yeah the 8.5 is what I have too. They are the best for the $ IMO.

    Good choice on the wires. A lot of people will say that they aren't necessary, but they ohm out much better than stock and when you step up to a set of headers, the boots can be bent for clearance, unlike any other wire.
