Well With my wires and plugs Its giving me an extra 25HP a piece yo. You should pick up a set. I got mine at pepboys yo@!
seriosly just get OEM plugs (best performence) and some red perfoermence wires off of IE website. I really think the wires are just for looks, its not like its gonna do that much unless you have other mods to complement it.

the plus 4's are not a problem necessarily...just a sales ploy...overkill...i say go bosch platinum if you are running a stock NA setup or Platinum +2 if running MSD and High Tuned NA(cam intake headers exhaust etc) or Boost(turbo or supercharger) all they do is decrease the chance of fouling(not arcing)...the chances of one prong not arcing is slim...2 almost never...4 overkill....because the arc will only go to one prong anyway...the only other advatage to the Bosch +2 or +4's are the angle of the prong makes more sense...IMO

interesting series of posts, as for the lower voltage I have taken care of that with the MSD coil which fires at around 48KV and can support the high fire rate. I will try a two prong plug next time and see what happens, dont mind spending the money for a little boost.
Just an amatuer here but understand the electrical side quite well so have been dabbling with different combinations of wires coils and plugs.
