AC Delco Iridiums, best spark plugs out there! They're like $7 a piece, but from my experience, the gas mileage gains with new plugs pays them off fast.

Yeah, plugs used to be $0.50, but they were copper, fouled easily, and had to be regapped constantly Laughing

$6.44 per spark plug (ACDelco 41-101) and $24.77 for wires (ACDelco 9746BB) were the last prices I paid in Sept.

AC Delcos, some reputable parts places wont even sell you Bosch or Denzo for the Impala. Denzo's have better success than Bosch in these cars, but not 100% reliable like Delcos

As in 9.99 per plug? If so... that's insane.

Indeed. That's why everytime I'm in Michigan, I load up on car stuff. Cleaning supplies are literally 1/3 of the price for a 10 minute drive. STUPID. I hate Canada!!!!
