Two Mini Coopers!
So what are they? I want to get all the power I can out of my car as I think I am switching to STS next week... Lemme know so I can go get some!
I checked before and the dealer wanted to charge me $80+ for one spark plug wire. Well, since Magnecor's are $100+, I decided to go the right way with the Magnecor's. Performance gains? My butt dyno was numb back when I installed it. Don't ask why.And with 30k miles on them, I didn't want one new and 3 old, so I replaced all 4. Ahem. $97 later... (thank you SOA for not selling the wires as a kit)
I'm gonna probably try some iridium on some NGK, do a quick 0-60 and see which ones seemt to pull better.COwannago said:Damn James, I was just gonna ask you that question myself. Whatever you decide is best, I'll get and then I'll instal them at your place or something.:sunny:
I did the same thing when i went to change my plugs. (actually my friend did). Best part it was 9:30 at night and we didn't have spare wires!!!!!! So we spent an hour and a half making two new wires. Let me tell ya...it ain't fun.horatio102 said:The iridium are supposed to have the power of copper and the longevity of platinum.
I personally would rather change my spark plugs every 10k miles than pay for the iridiums.
If something should happen and the plugs get seriously fouled, at least I'm only out a $2 plug, right? right.
Be careful though. I went to check my plugs today and I ripped the stupid connector off the end of my plug wire (see photo)
