OK, so its tune up time. Was thinking of Delco Iridium 41101 plugs and does anyone have any experience with Taylor Street Thunder wires? Thanks. Cool

No experience with those particular wires, but anything other than AC Delco or PRJ wires are a sure fire way to piss off your car.

go with what IffyG said.

And I wouldnt even bother with the PRJ unless you are heavily modded. Even then, some say you dont need them

Yep, always good to stick with oem parts. I know people have posted problems on here because they were using aftermarket wires and plugs. Switched to ac Delco and all fixed

I was just looking at those on Rockauto.com. Are the stock plugs on the 3400 Iridium? I'd go pull a plug and look but if anyone knows it would save me a step in the process.

I'm just looking for stock replacements; this car is a daily driver. Nothing fancy.

I don't think a 3400 uses 41-101s. That being said, stock plugs on a 2002 might have been platinum, but those have been phased out in favor or iridiums.

Not knocking what iffy says cause he does know his stuff, but I had nothing but trouble with my delco wires. Had the first replacement set go bad at 13 months; no warranty. the second set at 5 months. Threw those away and bought a set of autolites and to my surprise I'm going on 2 years with no trouble and a lifetime warranty if there is. Not saying they are great, but for a slighlty modded daily driver, no problems.

Alternately my wifes 04 has a set of prestolite wires from carquest. Great results there too.
