Question Where can I get spark plug wires?

Who manufactures spark plug wires for 2000 Impreza RS and where in the world can I get them?

I don't want to spend $53 or more and have to special order an OEM replacement from Auto parts stores here so I am looking for aftermarket.

Thanks
Jim

Magnecore, Sparkco, NGK...etc...

I'd go with Magnecore or NGKs.

Make your own, its cheaper. Check out scoobymods.com for a couple of options (I did the custom MSD write up). Anything is better than stock, so really it doesn't matter which brand you go with. Magnecores are a high resistance wire (I think the NGKs are also) which means they should be a quick swap. MSDs, Taylors, etc can be bought in 2 versions... high and low resistance. Low resistance wires will get more spark to the plug (in the same time interval) but the gap must be increased (rather dramatically) to keep them firing correctly (your moving the current at low resistance but the overall resistance of the system must remain rel constant so you increase the effective res by increasing the plug gap... make sense?). Stay away from Nology Hotwires, Direct Hits, etc as they are somewhat gimicky and way expensive for what you get... Any spark plug or wire that claims hp increases is b/s.

Magnecor can be bought from cyberauto.com, or direct from Magnecor.

I heard the Sparcos are inferior to other plugwire brands. I forgot what was actually said about them but I know to avoid them.

I just ordered a set of the Magnecors. Anyone know if they have a different resistance so that I may need to gap the plugs different than stock?

Thanks
Jim

Nope, stock gap should be fine with the Magnacores.
