Plugs n Leads??

I need new leads and plugs on my EF2 Ghia as i dont think all 6 cylinders are firing properly. I've been told i should get NGK plugs and 8mm Top Gun leads. Are these the go or are there better ones which could make the car perform better? Also, is it work getting the injectors cleaned as that could be the problem aswell as ive left the petrol too low a couple of times :/

Plugs and Leads

I just changed mine on a EF2 Ghia, got rid of a few jerks at idle, dont think that bigger leads would lead to more horses. Run premium in your tank, runs a bit hotter than ULP and cleans a little bit. Otherwise some of the aftermarket cleaners you put in your tank arent to bad, if that doesnt work a injector service would cost about 100-150 bucks, does here in northwest WA.

I'd recommend getting the injectors cleaned and checked off the car. That way, a bad injector can be identified, and replace if necesary. Also replace the fuel filter at the same time and reset the computer.

Re: Plugs n Leads??

if you go top gun leads get the LPG spec ones. They have a lower resistance per cm than the others.
