Default Belden Premium Wires Going on Tomorrow (INSTALLED PICS)

Picked them up at Napa today!! Quite the smell when I opened the box too...


Aww what a cute packet of di-electric!!

I've got one question though...if it'* not enough to go all the way can I use this silicone compound? Iit doesn't list electrical components anywhere in the application, but it looks just like di-electric grease. Thoughts?

Thanks! I'll hopefully get pics when they're installed.

At least they gave you the right ones.

Ask about my WCBF wire experience. It took 2 trips and a intoxicated BillW talking the napa guy into the right parts.


the packet that comes with it will be fine.

If not go back to autozone/napa with $0.99 and get another little packet.

Changing plugs too?

No plugs, I put in the NGK-TR55'* in late spring. I would have to think the they're still good! I didn't have the Beldens at the time and it obviously took me a while to get to them! As far as I know (my parents could know) the wires on the car have been there for a LONG while. Could be close to original. 134,000 on the clock as of now.

Those suckers should last you a good long time.

MAKE SURE TO KEEP YOUR SALES RECEIPT! That way, when you need a new set, you can return the old ones and get a new set for free. Lifetime warranty, baby! They won't honor it without the original receipt.

I think when I got mine they were around $40. Not too bad for a lifetime supply of plug wires

I totally agree, unfortuantly lifetime doesn't help me in Canada. I think Napa sells them here but for about double that price.

Got them on today! Excuse the nasty grime on the rest of the engine. It sure makes the wires look good though right?
The hardest part was getting those stupid wire clips apart Getting all the wires to sit well was a bit tricky, but it should work.







Hold on, what'* this?....








It looks like more fun with the car tomorrow!! I'm loving this week off before the semester starts
