WHY SPECIAL WIRES?
Most car manufacturers use carbon resistor high tension wiring for two reasons::
1. IT KEEPS RADIO STATIC DOWN! 2. IT'S CHEAP!
THESE ARE LOUSY REASONS FOR A RACE CAR !!
They may be good reasons for the car makers to use it for stock engines, but carbon resistor wire is not good enough for high performance applications. To start with, as the name implies, there is resistance built into the wire. This decreases the voltage at the spark plug gap. Second, the carbon filament starts to burn out after about 10,000 miles, and the result is misfires, rough idle, and poor performance.
Our performance wiring sets use a CPE core (not cheap hypalon or carbon) with a jacketed outer sheath. They are good for over 50,000 volts without leakage, and will last for over 50,000 miles. Best of all, the wire sets are made for each particular make of car and will fit without modification. If you have ever struggled with wire sets that are too short or have the wrong end connectors, you will appreciate this.
When ordering, please specify the exact make, model, year, and engine size. Also, please refer to the notes at the bottom of this page for the meaning of the abbreviations after the make of some cars on this list. Our high performance wiring sets are available for the following makes of cars:
|ALFA ROMEO||AUDI||AUSTIN-HEALEY||AH SPRITE||BMW (SC)||CAPRI||CHEVY LUV||DATSUN||DELOREAN|
|DODGE||FIAT||FORD FIESTA||FORD EXP, ESCORT||HONDA||ISUZU||JAGUAR||LANCIA||LOTUS & JENSEN-HEALEY|
|MAZDA||MAZDA MIATA (SC)||MERCEDES (SC)||MGA||MGB||MG MIDGET||MITSUBISHI||MORRIS||NISSAN|
|OPEL||PEUGEOT||PORSCHE (SC)||PORSCHE 911, 924, 928 (SC, MS)||RENAULT||ROVER||SAAB (SC)||SUBARU|
|SUNBEAM||SUZUKI||TOYOTA||TOYOTA MR-2, GTS (SC)||TRIUMPH||VOLVO||VOLVO 700 & 900 SERIES --- SC|
|VOLKSWAGEN WATER-COOLED 16-VLV, CORONADO (SC)||VOLKSWAGEN WATER-COOLED 8-VALVE|
(1) "SC" indicates that these sets have special spark plug connectors. Add $12.00 per spark plug wire for these .
(2) "MS" indicates that these sets have metallic sheaths. add $15.00 per plug wire for these sets.
(3) Engines having two spark plugs per cylinder require two sets of wires and the price is naturally double that of a single plug engine.
(4) Any car having a special resistor in the ignition wires will have a surcharge for the resistor. This usually applies only to 6-cyl BMW and some Mercedes.
Example: For a 4-cylinder Toyota MR-2 set with the "SC" code designation after it, the price would be $52.00 (the basic price given above for a 4-cylinder engine) plus $48.00 (4 x $12 for the SC) for a total of $100.00.
