If you have a Murrays out by you, stockers run about 45-50$ + Tax.

About the equivalent $$$ of running Autozone's finest :lolsign:

As far as I know, stockers run just fine.

Quoted from ZZP's Website:

Aftermarket Plug wires
Unless you have a problem with your stock wires, don't buy aftermarket ones. In our experience of working on GPs the failure rate of aftermarket wires is over 10 times that of stock wires. GM puts everything they have into making cars get the best mileage they can with the least amount of problems. A poor ignition system would increase emissions, which GM couldn't afford. This means plug wires from the factory are designed for high spark, low radio noise and excellent performance. All of the ZZP cars run stock wires.

Now if you plan on changing your plugs every 6 months, then I would probably suggest aftermarket wires like PRJ's. Since there is less of a chance of destroying a wire when replacing them over, and over...

Good luck.
