i agree and disagree.. first you should do boltons first because that gets the car to breathe way better and u will actually see better results.... and nitrouse can be harmful to your engine if your stupid about it.. read up on it befor u decide to get it, nitrous can be spayed without screwin up your engine if u are safe about it (window switch, dont spray for more then 12 or so seconds, and only spray every so often.. it also doesnt effect fuel economy when ur not using it (but who cares about mpg.. i dont... read sig)

but i disagree on the price only (what do u consider "most")... full boltons will cost way more then a good nitrous setup.... headers can cost anywhere from $500-1000+ with non catted y-pipe (even more with highflows) catbacks start at $350+, aftermarket tb $350 (free if u port your stocker) lid $90, cold air induction packages $300, MAF $200-300, if u count a Electric Water Pump as a bolt on thats another $500, 10% underdrive $300 a handheld programmer or a tune there is another few hundred... thats thousands of dollars, a good nitrous ste up will cost WAY less then that..

but if ur gonna spray DO boltons first, that is the smartest thing to do.. wow im way off topic

Ok may I ask how much a piece for these and where would you get them?
I saw some 42.99 a piece ac delco coper core I believe at oreilys and what would be wrong with these, doesn't anybody on here respect a dollar?
I,m just asjing cause I know 4th gens aint no simple designed vehicle and its got little to do with a 67, or 70 z28 its just a badge.
Good looking but clutch, electronics, ease of accessibility for engine maintenance, low to ground not easy to deal with for a senior citizen.

You can get copper NGK TR55s (part number 3951) for $9/box of 4, or $2.25 a piece. Several places sell this brand, including many of our site sponsors (here is a link to one: http://www.ws6project.com/user_stor/...s-box-of-4--1/ .) Many local auto parts chains also sell this brand.

No idea what you're talking about. These plugs are the very definition of affordable.
