Default Best Spark Plug Wires under $40

yes shipped or bought locally.

I can get the premium autolight 8mm ones at Shucks (western equivilant to advance I think)

This is what the car has now, however they are old and am going to replace them anyway


Or the blue ones some people on here use I think are also 8mm.

Whats everybodys favorite for wires?

I need the best and most reliable here, trying to sqeeze every bit of performance out of the beast.

Napa Belden wires are the blue ones.

I've gotten AC Delco'* for $41 and Autolite Professionals for $40.. both are also good.

I will be doing wires too as well. Can you get the AC Delco'* at any parts store, or the dealer?? Do Autolite professionals come in colors?

autolites are grey at least the ones I can get


arnt AC delco 7mm or something? I thought they would not be as good as a 8mm wire, especially when I upgrade my coils.

I must be thinking of another brand.

I thought the extra 1mm was just thicker insulation.

I may go with Taylor again. Anyone know where to get them (it'* been a while).

I heard there is absolutly no affect on performance. I say just get OEM AC Delco. Gotta admit the stock wires are pretty damn good. Most last well over 100K.
