NGK makes very good plugs. They came stock in my BMW and I think that they come stock in Honda/Acura too. Just get the best ones that you can afford. At least you only need 4 of them. I am not familiar with a good brand of wires.

Changing to another brand of spark plugs will not increase HP.

spark plugs increase the efficency of the gas used, they do NOT give you more power.on a base RSX they aren't going to do much, so just get whats recommended and save your money for something that really matters.

Japanese cars are suppost to use NGK spark plugs. You could also use Bosch, which is usually for german cars. Bosch could be used on any car and it gives the most power. Do not use Champion. Champion is a brand for american cars.

NGK is the way to go. They're very reliable and I've had them on my previous car and current.

Just use the stock plugs (NGK) which are very good. If you are doing some performance upgrades you may want to go with a cooler plug to reduce the chance of knock. As far as wires, the RSX uses coil-on plug setup which doesn't use high voltage wires at all (each plug has its own coil right on top of it). This is the optimum setup and is not worth the effort of changing for anything such as Nology Hotwires (tried them with horrible performance results). Generally, the honda/acrua ignition setup is very good until you start making very big mods, and even then you only need small changes such as cooler plugs.

I'd stay with new OEM brand plugs. Every time I've tried a performance (platinum Bosch, etc) plug I've had bad luck. You could index them and maybe see a small improvement.
