4 plugs appx $8
wires could be anywhere from $20-50. Just get the cheapest they have. Not worth sinking a lot of cash into a 92 protege. You woun't notice the difference in the more expensive wires.

Do i only need the 4 plugs for the 95 protege i have? Im considering getting iridium plugs also to see if there is a difference.

Copper plugs are the shiznit.
Platinums and iridiums are a waste of money.

the last plugs I put in my car were the NGK's. Im not sure what Kind they were..

So would Copper plugs work better than others?

1.8Ltr SOHC?

Sorry, Im a n00b when it comes to spark plugs...
I only know how to gap them..when it comes to knowing the differences.

*poof* Im confused

the condition of the plug is much more important than the TYPE of plug.

the NGK is the OEM plug but you will notice no difference if you switch to a standard copper plug. I promise.
