    Cool

    Huh?

    I have them in my Car and in my Tahoe...Its guaranted ignition, especially under heavy acceleration and tons of fuel...

    It takes the concept of Splitfire technology to the the next level...

    The New Fusions i would love to get my hands on...No one has them in stock that deliver to me...

    What would you put in NGK? HAHAHAHAHa

    Shhhhh, dont tell anyone but thats the purpose of the 4 prongs...

    The more prongs, the more chances you have for ignition....If you dump in a lot of fuel the prong get fouled up, but if you multiply the prongs you multiply the chances for ignition...

    Have you ever taken satistics?

    if you have 9 spoons in the draw and 1 knife, the chances of getting the knife are 1/10.

    If you were to double the number of knives, and replace the spoons with the difference, your odds of gettin a knife is 2/10 which is also 1/5.

    Now double it one more time making it 4 knives and 6 spoons and your odds are 4/10 or 2/5...

    So you see the more prongs the more changes of ignition and less missings...And the extra electrods do not draw more power to ignite, actually less for it doesnt have to find that lonesome electod....

    Dont knock it till you try it....

    TR55'S AND CRANE WIRES But if it's a choice between Taylor and MSD, I'd say Taylor.

    Stock wires and plugs work just fine for stock and even modified applications. Spend you money on something more useful.

    The MSD's and if your dumb enough to WASTE your money on +4's please PM me cause I have lots of stuff you can waste your money on!!!! I don't give a _uck if you put 10 electrodes on the plug it's ONLY GOING TO SPARK ONCE and to the closests grounding strap.

    If ANY of those BS plugs worked or you could gain ANY performance you don't think the Prostock cars or even Nascar guys wouldn't be running that JUNK....... Let me guess there is rules outlawing them. Yeah _ucking right!!!

    Your car is ALL motor right?

    MSDs?

    I had a Bad experience with them..They are no good with heat...

    The ohms vary from 150 to 325 in a single set, which leads to bad idle and runnin conditions, and they short out so easily...

    I quit using them for they are too expensive for nuttin...The Morosso wires have been nice to me...Ultra 40 means only 40 ohms of resistance / foot. Less resistance means more energy being sent to the sparkplug...More energy means bigger spark, and cleaner ignition...

    Well the MSD's are 50 ohms per foot. Not sure where you get your #'s but i can't see paying the difference in price for a couple of ohms. You can get the MSD's now for $60 all day.http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/MSD-P...spagenameZWDVW
    Seeing that the wires are only about 4-5 inches long.
    We run them on 90% of our race cars which consists of 15-20 cars and have never had a problem with there boots holding up to heat....... Unless they have been layed right against the headers!!

    And ohms has NOTHING to do with "energy" it has to do with resistance.

    Talking

    I ordered three sets of MSD wires...2 out of the three i tossed for i changed out 4 wires due to varyin ohms and shorted out wires, which lead to poor idle...I even covered them with addition insulation with boot protectors and they still let me down...

    When i cruised they shook my car so bad i thought i had a bad rim. I balanced my wheels twice, the driveshaft was inspected. I even changed all the injectors and cleaned out the intake manifold...

    The $60 wires costed me $200 in troubleshooting...

    I paid $100 for the moroso and they are sooo smooth...But its all the same at the end of the day...We are all looking for that extra edge. And the only way to get it is trail and error...

    Go for what you can afford. I dropped too much money for 50hp and 40ftlb, but to me its all worth it for when i put my new cam and headers on, i will have more flow then those little 78mm intakes...
