Default Whee, just got Magnecor 8mm street wires for my mom

I ordered the 8mm standard magnecors for my moms legacy and it made a big difference. I dont know how old the wires where (just bought the car not too long ago) but now the idle is almost perfectly smooth!

Part numbers 90-94 legacy (actually most 2.2 from 90-97)

8.5mm #45180
8mm #40180


The crazy thing, I never notice but these have actual SUBARU boots on them! I guess magnecor buys them from subaru. Talk about perfect fit

The 8.5mm are red and the 8mm are blue. I can see the difference in thickness of the internal conductor. These wires could be a "cheap" alternative to those who are not modifying the vehicle.

For those of you who dont know, these plug wires have better performance than stock and NEVER need to be replaced.

Cool

What was the price for these and did you order them directly from Magnecor? TIA.

I bought them from CyberSpaceAuto.com which happens to be the same company as alamomotorsports If I remember right.

I think the 8.5mm are 60 while the 8mm are 40

Default Cam cover boot?

I wanted to order the 8.5mm Magencors for my car, but their catalog lists several types - they talk about boot in the cam cover, that can be either oval, teardrop shaped with ignition coils centrally or teardrop shaped with ignition coils offset to left.

I can't find anything that looks like the picture they have in the catalog! Where is it (an engine bay picture with some arrows would probably help)?

Also, what is an ignition coil tower (male/female)?

Thanks, D.

danci1973, The spark plug boots are the ones on the spark plug end of the wire, down low in the engine bay on each side. Tug one off (passenger side front is probably easiest to reach) and note the shape of the flat part above the actual boot. This is the shield that keeps water out of the plug cavity.
The coil-pack is on top of the motor where the other end of the wire plugs in. Tug the wire off and note whether the coil terminal is male or female as shown on the magnecor catalog page. Hope that helps?
I have the 8.5mm wires on both my GT and my Integra. These are an excellent product that will outlast all the others hands down!

Really 100 dollars for these is a good price. You do realize that standard plugs are a CONSUMABLE ITEM, where as these never need replaced (not counting damage). If you drove the car for 90k miles you have already more than payed for them....... Plus they will give equal performance over age where the stock wires slowly degrade.

Oh, I know. I wasn't saying the price was bad just alot higher than the SOHC wires. I still think they are worth the 100+.

Talking

I'm a little shocked at the prices. Can anyone confirm whether or not the part number Ciper listed will work on a '93 Leg. Turbo? I just can't believe they'd only be ~$65 for my car. That'd be great!

Oh yeah, cyberauto.com

They take the order and then magnecor ships directly to you.
