I am upgrading my plug wires for a little extra power and pizazz. I get the gist of the product descriptions but some of the info goes right over my head-

Which is better? I'm open to other brand suggestions, price really isn't a factor as long as they come in red and have high quality and proven performance.

Thanks!

I use MSD Super Conductor wires on everything. Mine and customer cars, i see an improvement over what they come in with. MSD Super Conductor have a resistance value of 40-50 ohms of resistance per foot. i have never heard any radio noise. cost about $20 more. just an option.

BUMMER! I just checked the fitment from your link- they won't fit on a 2010.
heres a link for plugs. ive used them before. i entered my 4.0 but you could find the home page and enter 2010 and see what it says. i would think it should use the same plugs. i like the fusions too. right now i`m running the ngk`s though. right now they have a special going on the fusions, click that link on the site ( 2.00 off per plug)

I actually looked at sparkplugs.com and they didn't have 2010 listed as an option yet. Again, I would think they would take the same plugs as 05-09.

Which do you like better, fusion or ngk? The bosch ones earlier looked good too. Eh... I need to keep researching!

goodol Autolite 5143,,i gapped mine .043 for the supercharger, then took the sc off for upgrades and have been running them with the same gap and stock coil with no problems....i did keep my 39lbs injectors and have a semi stock tune for them....but the car runs great....

BTW i do have the MAGNECOR KV85 race wires - 3 years now no problems at all...their web page does a great job at explaining things...take the time and read it.....

Right on! Amazon.com confirms the fitment for Bosch (4509) Platinum IR Fusions and has the $2.00 rebate as well. Overall they're much less expensive than thought too.

I read the Magnacor site, it's full of very useful information for their products as well as plug wires overall, very impressive! They're definitely a contender for wires... Now to research the fitment for the other brands of plugs suggested. I'm glad I've got a little downtime at work today to play here and research the suggestions.
