Now that i got your attention :-D I was just wondering, What type of plug wires does everyone use? I am looking for some after market ones, I noticed NGK dont seem to make a set for the 2gens, So i was thinking either magnecor wires or ..... im not sure... Nolgys are to damn much for wires! This weekend I am installed the MSD 6-AL ignition mod. and also the MSD blaster II coil, while im at it, I want to change the wires to something that will support the Blaster II coil, and im also changing the cap and rotor, and plugs??? Any suggestions on PLUGS??? Please respond!!

well since you upgraded I would say the best out there from what I have been told is nology is the best. I know $70 is alot though. But I could have sworn i have seen NGK´s that fit. ntoe sure where though.

nologys for 70? all the places i checked were over 100$ Nologys are the ones that have a capacitor in each wire, with seperate grounding straps on each wire.. If you seen them for 70$ let me know where!!!!!!!!!!

NGK does make wires....ScortGT as a nice set of blue ones. You know Gary from Compass Motorsports used to cut down mustang wires to fit...kinda expensive but superb quality.

I checked the NGK website, and also a local parts store, Only thing they could find is the set for a probe, which dont help me, they said they do not have a set for a 1.8 escort........ :-|

NGK does make direct fit wires i´ve had them there ok but not very weather resistant, you can find them at any store having NGK´s.
the latest wires i purchased were the TAYLOR spiro-pro direct-fit 8mm plug wires i´ve had them for 4years, come summer i´ll replace them just cause there OLD.
of course you dont need crazy wires and hot-ignition boxes and stuff if your motors stock.

Hey, what IS the advantage of aftermarket plug wires anyway? Will they improve the engine´s power or make it run smoother? Should the spark plugs be upgraded at the same time?
:p
I´m considering them for a 1.9L engine with intake and exhaust mods only. Would you call this "stock?" If these engine mods aren´t worthwhile, what would be? (Turbos and engine swaps are beyond what I want to spend for now.)

Are aftermarket plugwires, such as Nology, a worthwhile mod?
