I personally have had great results with Bosch wires. say what you want but if you have your heart set on performance, spend the money somewhere other than wires. And don´t replace the wires just because they look "old" until you check the resistance there is no way to know if they are a problem. obviously this excludes cuts breaks and other physical damage. if you want to help the ignition system out try using a performance ignition coil. Don´t ask which one is best, because as Car Craft magazine just found out the difference is so small it can´t be claimed as a true difference. but almost all help out over stock.
i have 2 gt´s and i was running autolite wires in both of them cause i didn´t have much money. but i wouldn´t recommend them i would have a wire burn out every 6 months, they are junk. i would be driving and all of a sudden i would be running on three cylinders. i knew right away what it was and would replace it since it happened so many times. don´t know why i didn´t change brands , but i finnally got smart and switched. i have been running double silicone from autozone (lifetime warranty) and haven´t had a problem. they aren´t the best but they seem to hold up. i am also looking for a thicker gauge wire to use that isn´t to expensive and that holds up good, haven´t found what i want yet
hey gluehead, when your wires crapped out and your car was running on 3 cylinders...did it accelerate really slow and seem like the acceleration was inconsistent? just wondering i might be having that problem.
so i changed my wires and put in 4 brand new bosch platinum dual spark spark plugs. now today my car is no better than it was yesterday, or since i got it back from the shop. when it went into the shop, it wasn´t having this problem, just after i got it back. it keeps leveling out and not wanting to accelerate unless i stomp down on the gas, and even then from a dead start it´s slow as hell. i mean i was next to a kia rio and i did all i could just to keep up from a stop light, and he wasn´t racing.
what else should i check? could it be injectors, or something else? i think i might just take it back to the shop. they broke it, they better fix it without charging me. it´s not right that they charged me for labor last time for something else they broke and had to weld. i´m wondering if that´s what´s messing it up anyway. someone please help i don´t know what to do and my dad thinks i´m making this shit up.
