Do not confuse this later TSB with an earlier one, which had recommended ACDelco 41-985 gapped to 0.040"
Not sure that using the plug you selected, in place of the recommended plug would cause a noticeable change in engine performance ("runs like pure crap" isn't very specific). I would check for wires not fully on the plug, cracked plug insulators, plugs not torqued to spec.
Ok, first of all I do not want to hijack this thread. I'm thinking of changing the plugs in my 01 ss which are original. What one of the plugs that you have listed do I need. I'm thinking the z-28 and ss used the same plug right?
I am not interested in anything but stock as you can see by my sig on all of my cars.
