    my car is running bad please help

    i got a 94 camaro and its running pretty bad. right now when it idles it sounds like it might stall out and when im driving it theres no power at all. if you open the hood and look into the engine you can see on the passenger side of the block the spark plug wire is shreded from the header and you can see it arking really bad do you think that would cause all of those problems like not having power almost stalling out and taking alot of time to get high rpms. please help

    Uhh, yeah. That might be a good place to start. Replace your plugs and wires. Pretty much anything will do, but you have to take your time and route your wires very carefully, and use heat shielding if necessary.

    Time to get new wires. Remember, zip-ties can be your friend.

    I used NGK TR55's and MSD 8.5mm superconductors. But there are a ton of other options out there. Make sure you all your plugs are gapped properly before they go in, even 'pre-gapped' ones. A simple thing some people over-look.

    You might consider Iridium plugs for your application... They're expensive, but they last a long time, so you dont have to worry about changing them any time soon. As for wires... it is more important that they get routed correctly and safely than what brand you use. MSD, Taylor, Accel, etc.
