I have had good results with taylor, autolite pro, borg-warner, and bosch. Motorcraft too, if you can find them @ a reasonable price.

I put Bosch wires in mine, they were cheap on rockauto.com. They fit good, although the wire length was about a inch or so longer than the oem ones. I replaced mine when I put new plugs in at 96k, as wires should be replaced at least every 100k.

Dont know why, but im a fan of borg-warner parts & sensors. Always have treated me well. Reasonably priced & usually carry a lifetime warr. #2 on the list is autolite pro. Hell, ive even used omni-spark from oreillys with good results. I had trouble with duralast wires from az fitting properly on the coil.

I've changed OEM to Champion. Works fine, they are silicon wires and have 5 year warranty. Had good experience with Champion spark plugs in the past (different car). For my Bull I use OEM Motorcraft plugs.
