if there is nothing worng with your stockers, there is no performance advantage of getting new wires. If your stockers are bad you will gain the performance lost by them, and nothing more

my stock wires after 9 years had between 1000 and 4000 ohm resistance.

new 7mm beldens had between 250 and 550 ohms.

thats a HUGE difference if efficiency counts.

the wires for your 95 should be 8mm though.

i agree, probably not a performance increase to be had but there is the issue of durability. i have Magnecore KV-85s on my GTS, and i freakin love them. the quality is outstanding and i really think they would outlast the car. not to mention i've heard they have great customer service. if i were to get new wires i'd probably just go with ACDelco, unless a set of KV-85s were comparable in price. i wonder if Magnecore makes KV-85s for the 3800s?

Belden or autolite professional series are good wires...

Both of my cars have the Autolite Professional series wires and they have been great, no issues... I had issues with bith Bosch and Taylor wires... I will never waste my money on either one again...

I picked mine up at Advance Auto. Pretty reasonable. I think under $20
