For your mod list NGK TR-55 Plugs would fit the bill. Firecore wires as stated above are a great choice as well.

my bosch fusion (iridium) plugs run a little hotter than the tr55 but i've had no problems. im running crane firewire (about $50) however my next wires may be the expensive grannatelli zero ohm. cheers!

You will be fine using the NGK TR-55 plugs in that situation. Gap them in the range of .050 to .060. Better yet, just shoot for the middle at .055. You'll be good to go.

Yes they would work just fine. Being a stock cam I would gap around .055 or .060

My understanding is you want to close the gap the more power you make. I think they come gapped at .055 if im not mistaken
