NGK spark plug wires, and NGK spark plugs. G power or V power will be fine on the plugs. Stuttering could also be the distributor trying to give up on you. Try plugs and wires first though.

Thanks i was thinking the same thing. do you happen to know what ngk plugs exactly ?

I am confident that your build will be happy with the spark plugs that are recommended all over the forum.

Simple, cheap, and guaranteed to last. NGK V-Power copper plugs in the stock heatrange 5, and NGK blue wires.

For 40-50 bucks those are the parts that have proven themselves for decades to work perfectly.

You always want to stick to OEM for ignition components, or as close to OEM style as possible.

Some folks dislike copper plugs since they have a lower lifespan. They dont seem to realize changing $8 worth of spark plugs every few years is NOT a bad thing.

If you cannot find part numbers, I cannot help you. Part of being a mechanic is being able to figuer stuff out.

NGK has a website that shows what parts fit what vehicles. Breaks it down to OE style or aftermarket style.


OE style >> year, make model >> NGK part numbers given.

they will be long and dangly
:ROFLMAO: It's how I know I'm getting older by the day

Since the engine is a Y8, go to literally any parts store website, set up a vehicle, enter any combination of 96-00 Civic EX, search for spark plug or spark plug wires/ignition cables, and filter the results to only show NGK.

Pick literally anything that shows up, add to cart, checkout, and done.

There will also be tons and tons of part numbers to look at by doing this, to satisfy the apparent part number hard on.

Trippin me out slo, I knew i wasnt clever enough to put two things in the same message... being all efficient and removing redundancies all in the name of Batman himself before I could even blink an eye :)
