You won't see much of a performance increase doing stuff like this. I'd spend the money somewhere else.

But still if you want a decent set of leads, bosch are fine. Bosch plugs should be fine too.

Voxace plugs and leads can makea noticble difference in performance you may not get massive amounts of power but the engine will run smoother rev more freely and not to mention a increase in economy.
Hell my old kingswood picked up a fair amount of tourque witha bettere ignition system.

if the car is stock get some nice bosch leads and the NGK plugs forgot the part number. If you can afford them the Bosch super 4 plugs are really really good!

Bosch are fine. DON'T get Top Gun leads (if you do a search of the forums, you'll see why).

Plugs and leads are things to change when your car is due for new ones. It's a waste of money to swap them when the old ones are fine.
