Default Pep boys tune-up

Has any of you guys ever went to pep boys to get a platinum 4 tune-up? The reason i ask is because the price isn't bad and i want to get a tune up, they use bosch plugs and i wanted to get feedback on pepboys before i make a move.

Thanks,

what are they charging just out of curiousity. whoever you decide to have do it, make sure they use top quality wires. i believe i used to spend around 9-11 dollars a plug for densos, and i think i used to get the wires for around 69.99 from frpp with dealer discount or something like that . oh they were 9mm wires too my bad

NO BOSCH PLATINUMS! Your car will hate you, stick with ngk tr55's they are the copper ones and are the best for your car.

i would go ahead and change the wires and the plugs as its 2006. 7 years is long enough on plugs. i think copper is a little cold for a na mustang, if you were spraying juice copper is good, but not for a stock v8 imo.

The reason i asked that is because i was told that a 99 GT does'nt have plug wires.

Go out pop the hood and take a look. Do you have two packs of four coils mounted on the front of each side of the engine? They're square, and there will be four wires running to each.
