    Re: 8 plugs, 5 hours... what beer?

    OK well, I'll wait a week and get some plug wires as well... guess that'll lead to a six pack and a nice cigar weekend.

    Do the MSD wires really make a difference? I see Rock Auto has the AC Delco red leads (like I have on my car) for $55 and I don't think they're too bad.I currently don't have anything else done to my car, but if and when I do something, it would probably be header/exhaust and that's it. I've got nearly 120,000 miles on the car and can't justify going balls out with internals, etc.

At that price, my knuckles are already torn to shreds from boxing classes, so a couple more scars aren't going to kill me. Shit, at that price, I can break a hand while doing it and still come out ahead..

    I don't think you get any benefit out of them over the stock ones. They seem fairly similar. I just couldn't find any decent wires, the AC Delcos were sold out so it was the $35 set from the parts stores, the extreme AC delcos for $150, or the MSD for $55. I had a wire pulled apart so I had to get something ordered ASAP. The stock ones had a 90 degree fitting where the MSD ones have a bendable end that doesn't quite go 90 degrees.
