BWD wires?

Have any of you guys used these kind of wires? The guys at Orielley said they're just as good at the motorcraft ones and were cheaper. Havent installed em yet because i want to hear your guys opinion.

Ohh ok. And why do you say that or just because you use the STI wires. And I heard gaping my plugs up to .65 will help burn fuel more efficiently

you wont be able to start your car if you had plugs gapped to .65 haha you mean .065. im just fooling but the guys that are gapping there plugs to .065 are guys with screamin demon coil packs or similar ignition upgrades. stick with the stock gap opening.

Yea that's what I ment aha. I know I should stick with the stock gap just wanted to make sure there weren't any secrets out there. Might look into getting a coil pack down the road

If you ask people who run SD coils they say there isnt a change. The best way to get power out of your motor is a tuner. SCTx3, Banks, SuperChips.

Id say with the demon coil its lil more responsive slightly smoother amd maybe 0.5 to 1.0 mpg increase. For the price its good since stock ones are more expensive anyways.

And i second the sct tuner. Its the best mod im told.

Oh of course, I agree 100% with that Id rather go spend that money and go do something fun lol. But Im going to look into getting a screamin demon coil pack.

But are these wires decent and comparable to motorcraft ones?

if your gunna do a screamin demon-id recommend something better quality-not that motorcraft isnt good and probably wouldnt be good enough-im just saying for me, it makes me feel better.

i went with Taylor wires-they have 50ohms of resistance per foot which is great and there 8.2mm diameter wires. so far they look like there really good quality
