NGK and Ryco here too. Topgun leads tend to be good quality and decent price. Mock leads will be good, but probably expensive too.

I had a guy come out and make up a set of leads for my xy. He did it right there in my garage, its the same guy we use when our sprintcar engines are ready to be fired, same gauge leads too.. and it was only $60.

umm, i am not too sure on what oil you should be using. I know there is oil for gas cars, but dont know the difference. do gas cars run hotter???

but seeing it would be an auto box, you could use Castrol TQ95.
