I've tried the bosch super 4 and found they dont make a hell of a lot of difference. Would be interested in how you got on with the others, and how much they cost.

@ $60 a set vs $20 for the NGK's I had before I dint think the super 4 are worth it.

You won`t get any horsepower gain as if you did a moderfication, you get efficiency of horsepower as it maximizes the spark, and gives consistency. Combined with high performance leads I use Magnecor 8.5mm which has 3x less resistance to standard HSV leads again ensures greater spark and consistency.

If you have inferior leads and plugs and over time these do deteriorate, you get significant spark rertardation, and yes you can lose perhaps 5-10% horsepower.

There is only one official supplier for Australia, check the magnecor website, however any quality performance centre will be able to supply the genuine article. Beware there is an elcheapo version that are made and rip off the brandname.

Got a set on order from ROVParts in Adelaide (found through Thundercords) $100 per set seemed OK to me.

Magnecor leads come in different widths for Chevy, not sure for Fords, though $90-100 sounds about right.

These wires i just bought are not the 8.5mm Race wire (around $250 a set) but there hi-po 8mm wires. The guys in the Adelaide store suggested the Race wires were a little to sensitive to poor handling by mechanics to warrant the extra cost. Picking them up today, fitting tomorrow, will advise results.
