Honestly, the stock wires are more than enough. anything else is just for looks or bragging rights.

For plugs, I would go with the NGK 7's I got mine from Sunnit and they are the plug of choise on the i-club

Unless you have upgraded ignition, the stock wires are fine. If you do end up getting new wires, do NOT get Nology Hotwires as they are complete garbage. Stick with a quality manufacturer like Magencor or Jacobs.

really? nology is garbage???, my friend has nology hot wire
on his GS-R turbo, works really well though......
or may be sux at subaru engine or something then....=)?

i am thinking of NGK wires or MSD
but MSD is abit pricy, NGK seems cheaper isn't it?

I don't know about my factory wires and plugs...it seems
to have abit lagging on my RPM on each gears when I do
power shift, I thought was my factory clutch thats
not holding the power and slips...but one of my
friend told me should be my ignition has problem
either the plug is almost dead or wires
and feels like the ignition is not giving out
the power I need....after my turbo I mean.=)

Yes, Nology wires are garbage:

http://www.magnecor.com/magnecor1/truth.htm

Note that although it is a Magnecor page, the testing that showed Nology wires reducing power was done by an independent magazine. The physics of Nology's snake oil is well described, and that page is a great primer on the technology of ignition in engines.

Once again, are you even upgrading your ignition system (meaning you are installing higher output coils, such as MSD, Crane, or a TEC-II)? If not, you will not really see a benefit from upgrading the wires, though if your wires are degraded, a new set of stock wires might be in order.

I use Magnecors with my TEC-II and they are top quality. A very well insulated, high quality conductor wrapped in silicone. Exactly what is wanted in an ignition wire.

A set of Magnecor 8.5mm wires should be less than $50. You might save $10 by going with Jacobs wires.

I suspect anyone can tell a negative story about any manufacturer. I use Magnecor and have had no problems with them, but I'm sure someone out there can tell a story of their Magnecor wires being junk.
