I need help in picking the best spark plugs and wire set for my 98 GSR. Please let me know the pros and cons of the combo. Should I stick with original parts or aftermarket? This would help me a lot in my weekend work on my car. My GSR has 60K miles on it.

I have a 95 Civic Ex sedan with the GSR drivetrain in it. I have Magnecore wires and use Bosch platinum plugs. No complaints on either product.

Stock parts certainly work fine, but there are better alternatives out there. =-)

Magnecor makes great wires. I used their KV-85 wires on my Integra for years with no problems. For spark plugs, the NGK copper plugs work well, but for the best performance use an iridium plug, like a Denso. Higher cost, but it pays for itself with slightly improved performance.

Not sure about plugs but I know that I read (I think on TOV) that the best Wires to use are the Stock Wires. There was a Comparison of Stock Vs NGK Blue and the Stock wires had the Smoother Power Curve and Best overall Performance. I've heard elsewhere that the Iridium plugs are Great.
