Thumbs up Direct Hits

100+shipping from Challenge1 shut down shop sale

past setting-NGK Iridium plugs&stock wires

Pros-
A little increase of power, smoother idle, and hopefully increase of mpg in the future. Shawn from challenge1 wasn't lying if I still remember there was a debate on the Direct Hits. It's liked only press 3/5 of the gas pedal as I normally does with past NGK plugs and the car goes. It's easly and noticeably felt on freeway driving.

Cons-
If you use the direct hits, then out wires will stick up above the spark plug hole by an inch or more. The wires that come along with the set won't work on RS(the WRX one will work fine.) They are pricey!

Plan to get a set of Magnecor wires for the maximum result

did you have any issues with installation? i also bought the kit and absolutely could not get my car run with the system in. i've returned the kit to direct hits and they will hopefully be sending me a new system. i really hope it's worth all of the labor and trouble i've gone through...

No, I didn't have any problem installing them. Well, actually they were professionally installed; I've just done a small tune-up. I watched how the mechanic do all the works aside. Beside that wires stick out problem, there was no problem installing them at all!

Oh there is this one outer plug to help install each plugs, do you have it in the package?

Good luck!
