I've heard that Magnecores eat coils. Don't know how true it is, but still...you should look around about that before buying them.

no.

aftermarket wires imho, are a waste of money.

stock silicone wires are perfect for your stock engine

put your $$ into something else

cheers

They're poop. They don't fit the plugs properly, and will give practically no gains.

No, they won't give you any gains. Only difference is not having to replace them. The boots can slip off your spark plugs at times. I've had it happen to me once. Every time I open my hood for anything, I push the boots just for good measure.

I had mine for about 3 years, i changed the plugs and wires at the same time so I cant tell if the wires or plugs or the combination of both made things a tad smoother. However 2 months ago my plug wire came completely off the plug and caused a few misfires and threw a CEL. over the 3 years I had to reseat them many times. When Im ready to get new wires Im definatley looking around other then Magnacores. Maybe some sparkos well see.

They make my car uber fast ! at least 35 lb/oz of tork!!!


\I have had them for quite sometime and have never had them pop off. Seemd like a nice product when i bought it, and have had no complaints. My RS now has 120k miles, and wires have been on for more than half that. As compared to stockers.... Eh... I dont know.
