Default "Performance Spark plug wires"

Been at the hospital with my grandfather for a while on my Acer notebook(they suck!). Anyways ive been googling around about some decent plug wires. Been trying to find some ohm charts for resistance comparisons for different brands etc. So far ive found MSD 8.5mm was about 50 ohms. I believe i was on a toyota forum at the time.


Opinions on plug wires etc. Im tempted on buying the bulk sets and making my own plug wires for all the vehicles in my family. That way i can get perfect measurements etc. Im OCD about neatness under the hood.

As for plug wires for our engines I feel that any good quality wires will be fine. That said, I keep AC/Delco on mine simply because of the way GM engines prefer AC/Delco electronics. I buy them on Ebay.

Ohming out wires is only an interesting starting point.
You're looking for best hi-volt, relatively hi current conductor with low volt, low current testing
Best instrument would be what used to be called a 'megger'.

It's possible to have an installed wire read infinity and still fire, while another reading nominally correct misfires.

There are simply too many different manufacturing methods and technologies to use a simple method.
End of the day, it's what the mfr designed, and/or what works for MOST other people.

I'm running Taylor's for the 5.0 Mustang. I love the 135* boots, and they come off clean every time.





I bought them in the Blue color - they look schweet!

im running max perfromance wires and performance coil with new cap and rotor with bronze pins and ngk v power plugs and never had a issue with them. made a life and day diffrence.

the ngk plugs are the better version of the ac delco as it is the same company that makes them. do not run bosch or other crap as it will lead to problems
