    They were BS testings and took down.

    Resistance doesnt matter in such short a wire of the LSX series.

    I bought and use Nology wires. No complaints here and they have held up great over the years. They do require a ground for a each wire though!

    Is the Hypertech really not worth it? I bought one for around 100 bucks' and could tell a hell of a difference on the throttle response and gas ...

    Ya IMO if you need a tune, frost is the way to go at $125. Hypertech and the other brands have been know to decrease performance just a doom mentioned

    I have them on my car, picked them up when they were on sale for $100 from Summit Racing

    I've been very happy with them, and yes, resistance does matter even on a short wire. Less resistance = less voltage drop = stronger spark.

    As for plugs, I'd reccommend the AC Delco Iridiums, or the NGK Iridium IX's. I believe they are the same plug, since NGK makes the Iridiums for AC Delco. I have them in my car and they've been great. The hold their gap much better than conventional plugs and last a lot longer.

    Hello fellows I have TR55 plugs and MSD wires (160' thermo) and was wondering if some of the "new" style plugs might be better. Thanks, Henry
