Splitfire plugs

Was just gonna get the Autolites for $2 bucks each, but GI Joes up here had a clearance sale on the Splitfires for $1 (normally $3.99 each)

I am thinking while tuning it up, to go ahead and get new spark plug wires and distributor as well.

Any recommendations for wire sets and distributor?

Opinions on the plugs themselves?

I think most people on here stick with Motorcraft Plugs and wires. Not sure about distributors.

Personally, I've got E3 plugs and JBA wires. Seem to be working just fine. Was it worth the extra couple bucks? Well the blue wires look kind of cool. That's about it. Haha...

I'm using Bosch spiral core wires, a Screamin' Demon coil pack, and Bosch platinum +4's and my engine has never run better.

Cartain Applications will show great results for Split fires. My Centurion C-350 Ran better w/ Split Fires. But that was and EFI with 130,000. After i too them out my milage went down. Alot and i had problems with power. But that was also due to the facct that i downgraded.
I have heard ther is no difference in power. But i estimate they will last longer with th esame output over a longer period thatn the conventionals.
Personaly i am gonna get them.
