100k mile check up question

Morning...

My 2014 2SS, RS, M6, NPP CAI is coming due for her 100k miles check up, and I have the following questions:

1. What is the best spark plug and wire set up for our cars?
2. What is the best brand for suspension replacement as needed
3. Is it recommended to change Transmission fluids, and if so what is the best?
4. What other things should I be looking for on this car at this point.

When I bought the car I did all fluids: clutch, trans, differential and oil at 30k miles. I redid the clutch/brake resevior at 50k. I have run BG additives in both of my camaros as a standard and it has never done me wrong.

TIA - Liv

Since it made it to 100,000 on OEM parts, why are you asking? Shooting for more before the next major service?

I am asking, Because everywhere I go to shop and ask I get different answers. One says ACDelcos are fine, another says NGK...someone else says this wire and another says that. I want to continue to get life out of my car, as I love driving it. Additionally I am considering doing some upgrades once I am out of warranty...nothing major but definitely fun. Mods I am looking at are: New clutch, headers, ported throttle body with iceolator and a tune.

This forum has the most informed owners with the same car as I have, and the most consistent results. So I am asking.

I would suggest continuing with OEM stuff. Many have tried the over hyped over priced stuff just to find the factory stuff is pretty damn good.

What BG additives do you use please?

When I did the 30k check up we did the following:
* BG Utlra-Guard LS full Synthetic in my rear drive line and rear
differential in addition to recommended gear Lubricant
* BG Low Viscosity DOT 3 Brake Fluid
* BG Full Synthetic ATF to my tranny after it was flushed
* 44k in the fuel system every other oil change
* MOA run for 45 miles before the oil change with Amsoil oil

Now looking at the 100k mile tune up...I am asking for the rest. I fully intend to run the same again on the engine...along with an upper end cleaning.

I currently have 92k on the clock and this car hasn't missed a beat...tranny and clutch are strong, engine doesn't ever die and after working with a trained BG rep and seeing the changes is what made my decision. I don't regret it

Because the OEM spark plugs are discontinued. The suspension I intend to go oem, but would be remiss in not asking

They are everywhere. Just don't fall for the ebay counterfeits.

thank you!!! 41-110 is what I needed, and couldn't find. I logged onto Chevy and searched for the sparkplugs and it shows discontinued. no part number nothing for me to cross reference.

Then enter the salesman...you need platnium plugs with ceramic wires....and he can't tell me why.

so here I am asking and it came to pass
