Default best spark plugs?

Hey guys, I'm changing out the plugs in my '95 and '92 SL2's. I've never changed the plugs in them before so I wanted to know when purchasing new spark plugs if there is any particular brand or style that works better with these engines. I used to have an old Crown Vic that would only run right on the factory OE spec Motorcraft plugs and would actually run worse on the high end platinum plugs. I want to make sure that's not the case with the Saturn's 1.9L. Thanks for any advice.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

NGK BKR5ESA-11 you can order a couple of sets from RockAuto http://www.rockauto.com/ along with a new set of wires cheaper than you can buy them locally. Do not use a fine wire electrode plug. Platinum plugs are fine wire electrode.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
