Default BWD - Borg Warner - plug wires

Anyone ever run them? Any good/bad experiences?

They're the licensed brand of NASCAR.

No lifetime...I think...but they do have a limited warranty. I got them last weekend. Advance didn't have anything in stock. I didn't want to wait 3-5 days since I was getting KR and wanted to attempt to solve it.

I doubt they are causing my misfires, just wondering if I should grab AC Delcos this weekend and return these.

I am running Borg Warner wires (for two weeks) and have not had a problem.
Got them at Checker auto

Enrique, so were you having issues with misfires or drivability? You said the wire was deformed?

I think I want to return them too just because. I would have gotten AC Delcos they just didn't have any and I didn't feel like waiting.

I've personally had issues with BW plugwires, i ran a set on my LQ1 for awhile and they never fit right on the coils, which made the very hard to keep on tight, i ended up opting for the (much) more expensive delco ones from my local dealer

Misfires and the wire litteraly fell apart in my hand when I touched it.
