Spark Plugs & Leads

Hi all. Just curious as to what everyone's opinion would be on this topic.

What would the best spark plugs, and the best high-tension leads be to use on a turbo-charged EA setup??

Re: Spark Plugs & Leads

i think the consensus is that the autolite plugs the jim mock uses are the best. i dont know about a turbo setup but if they are the best for NA falcons then im sure theyd be the best or close to it for turbo falcs. ive got NGK Iridium IX plugs in my xr6 and i think they are great.

in the end though a sparkies a sparkie and its not going to make a MASSIVE difference whenther you spend $5 a plug or $50.

Re: Spark Plugs & Leads

I'm running NGK Iridiums and 8.8mm spiral wound leads.. there is a definite difference, probably only a few kw, but probably worth it in the long run (the iridiums last for ~160,000km apparently, and on LPG probably longer, and the leads should last forever)

The cost for all of that was around $240, but if you get the magnecore leads it will be about $100 more (they didn't have magnecore in stock, so I got these leads which are meant to be the same but without brandname pricing)

TQE, SWB, ATPS, Worst of the E-series.. and I wouldn't have it any other way
