Gen3 tune up parts to order at?

As the title states, looking for Gen3 tune up parts for my ride. Need plugs and wires and would like to know where youíve purchased your parts from. Itís been a while since Iíve done a tune up (when I had a Gen2 motor), so not certain as to how much of a difference it would be compared to a Gen3. Thanks.

You can use Gen 2 wires if you want.
I'm sure primedriven.com carries most gen 3 parts you need including wires, distributor cap & rotor.
as for plugs, I use copper plugs NGK BKR7E.

Careful as GEN 2 wires have a different end cap on distributor cap. Also the gen 3 wires come with a new cable tray to hold together save onto valve cover. OEM is generally best all around.

There are several sources for parts including TwosRus, AEM, Prime and others who soley deal with OEM. I've got some occasional bits from RockAuto but you need to know what your buying as the quality can vary dramatically.

I bought all my 3rd gen tune up parts at TwosRUs. Same with my ball joints, tie rods, etc. They're basically the first place I look when a need arises for my MR2.

Iíve emailed twosrus and was advised by David Hawkins that they donít carry Gen3 tune up parts.

amayama.com works as well, though you'll need the part numbers.
