What kind of plugs do I need? (Heat range?)
What do I need gap them to?
Do I need to torque them, if so what to?
Thanks! :)

Just go down to your local auto supply store and buy the cheapest plugs they sell which cross reference to your car. Don't worry about setting the gap, they will come +/- close enough out of the box. Unless the gap is spread over 1/2 inch from the tip, or the tap is touching the tip, it will work just fine. Don't over tighten them. I use just a little "muph" of tightness after the thread stops turning. Just enough to keep the plugs from vibrating out.

Wow, it took 3 month to get a reply on this fourm, lol.
I did get these changed. It was a really stright forward job. A lot easier to reach the sparkplugs on this car then on my mustang.
Thank you for the reply though.
