scp states that theses are "too hot for stock wires". i just replaced mine with mallory 8mm performance wires, will i be fine? and should i go ahead and gap my plugs at .065 or where should i gap them at?
well from a business perspective, its a great line to use....there are just so many clueless people out there who can't do any research that they just buy into it and end up spending money needlessly because subconsciously they think that anything costing them a good amount of money has to be worth something
well being as how the stock coil packs are nearing 100k i figure its time to replace before they go out and i've heard that the best aftermarket coilpacks were scremin demon, that msd was junk for our cars. these where only a few dollars more than stock replacements. i did not nessessarily purchase these for performance gain as i know if any gain is acheived it won't be much, i more bought these because its time for new ones.

The one thing I wasn't sure about was that it instructs you...
Hey guys, it has been quite a while but it's good to be back!
I am in need of some guidance regarding a recent engine swap in my 97 bird.
The back story:
It has been quite a while since I have posted, mostly due to the fact that my motor exploded roughly 6 years ago. Since then the car has...
Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could tell me for sure if these spark plug wires only fit DOHC applications or if they'll also fit my SOHC:
I have a 97 Thunderbird that still has the old modular 4.6 SOHC and the wires I got a...
Okay, so two years ago I got the P1443 and replaced all the evap hoses with fuel line and both electrical parts. I should say, all but one hose, the one closest to the fuel tank. I was pretty sure I could get that one off, but not sure at all I could get a new hose on there because it looked...
