10mm IGN leads on I6

Hey guys and gals!

Has anyone here fit a set of 10mm leads onto there EF-AU 16?
If so, do the standard lead holders (clips) hold them in place properly?

Thanks!

No 10mm leads will not fit into the stock holders.

10mm? Bit overkill for a 6 BC.

I had 10mm leads on my Xr6 they fit,way too tight though
I had the topgun10mm leads in the car for 6 months and they started missfiring after 4 months ,Ive been lead to beleive to use factory ford items as the other arent as relieable.

Its just me in the Wagon

Bosch 8mm leads are the go, I had Champion 8mm and they laster about 12000kms before they started to arc. Apparently Bosch last closer to 20,000kms (in a falcon).

Bosch claim 50,000kms but I don't believe it.

LOL.. im not expecting to notice any gains from these leads, just thought id do it for the sake of it to be honest, but I guess it might be overkill... but they come in all sorts of nice colours :)

I just wanted to figure out if I should grab the EF ones that follow the rocker cover all the way found, or just do it the easy EA way (cut across the middle) and use bigger holders.

Thanks for the replies fellas!

Actually, while were on the Ignition topic.

Has anyone noticed any difference between different Spark Plugs on the I6. I use the NGK-R and have no complaints, but just curious as to any variations that may help out the old girl.

Car has LPG, and ULP.

Ciao.

Best resonable priced plugs for gas are NGK ZGR 6B-11 if you want to spend big dollars fit NGK Iridiums
