Shopping Spree!!!

Went out today and bought some goodies for the EB2 "S"
(With Help From The Tax Man)
Bought Myself the Following-

K&N Panel Filter- $115
Top Gun 8mm Ignition Leads- $35
IRK Iridium IX Spark Plugs- $78

Spark plugs were a bit steep and i probobly should have shopped around a bit more but they were alot cheaper where i got them from (Auto 1) than Auto-Barn which quoted me $21 each- $126!!!!

Overall they made the car alot more responsive, and a bit better acceleration wise but I didnt really notice much of a power increas- Havent given it a hammering though!!!

Cheers All

Re: Shopping Spree!!!

Mmm, I thought the top gun leads were more expensive, might have to go get a set if they are only $35!! Sounds like a bargin buy there, well done.

Re: Shopping Spree!!!

the leads i got were only the heavy duty ones not the racing ones- mine are 8mm the racing ones are 8.8mm or 10mm something like that, i prob should have got the beter 1's but oh well i can always update in the future.

Re: Shopping Spree!!!

nah, 8mm are fine for most uses. Thats all in need. 8.8mm would be good too, 10mm is overkill I think.

Worth while? Does that mean that $70 worth of plugs only last untill the next service?

You hear about everyone doing different CAI's that make SFA difference, would leads and plugs be a better idea?

Re: Shopping Spree!!!

i got 9mm eagle leads but thats because gas needs more spark, but still $35 is ****n cheap no matter what. even the plugs are dirt cheap, platinums are usually that expensive.

they make the car run smoother and idle better they wont really boost that much in performance unless you got a turbo or something as far as ive been told.
