Well I finally replaced the original wires on both of my civics. I've been waiting for a good deal on some MSD wires to go with my MSD cap and coil on my Rex. Which isn't currently installed due to replacing the distributor a couple of months ago.
I ended up ordering them from Summit Racing for like $65 each.
OMG DID THOSE ADD HP?! In my mind plug wires are more about durability (being able to pull them out without yanking them apart) than they are a performance piece. I'd never spend more than 30-40$ on a set of plug wires. My NGK wires work great.
OEMs are definitely nice. I'm sure the MSD ones are super nice as well. Probably won't have to change wires for a LONG time. Plus they're red and go w/ your car. NGKs are blue. OEM is just greyish/black.
I went with MSD wires because I already have the MSD Power Cap and SS Coil so I wanted everything to match. I was looking at the NGK Power wires but couldn't find them less than $100 a set. I read a review of different brand wires at TPR Magazine I think and the MSD's did very well against the competition.
Plus I *only* paid $130. I wasn't going to get them for my DD but I figured I can take them off and put them on the CRX once it gets its D16Y8 head.
Very nice. I'm looking to get a set for my rex. I will probably go with Accel wires because i'm trying to color match my engine. There the only ones besides a few crappy brands that make blue wires. Do you notice any improvement with them? HP or MPG?
