Any pref on Spark Plug Wires / Coils

Just checking if there is any preference on Sprak plug wire upgrades or coil packs?

Thoughts?

leave the coil packs stock and stock wires are fine also.

I left coil packs stock as if you change them, you start to get into the mess of trying to adjust your entire electrical system to work with packs that may or may not be compatible with the other stock components of your system.

I did however change the wires to Granatelli's as this will not affect your electrical system but will provide more energy to your plugs. I did not dyno before and after to truly verify what bang for my buck I got with these, so you'll have to decide if they're worth it.

Good luck.

When I installed headers I chose the Nickey Performance wires. I left the coil packs stock.

I've always run the 8.5mm MSD on my ls cars. Never had an issue. I liked that the boots bent for my headers

Making over 1,000 wheel HP with stock coils and new stock wires...

Why do people mess with perfection?

I must concur - from everything I have heard (V8)... stock coils and plugs are good to at least a little north of 650RWHP.

That being said, while we were in there, I did have my plug wires changed out to to the Taylor 10.4mm Race wires when I had my LT Headers, HFC's and RDP Tune put in.

More for the opportunity than necessity. First things always - Talk to your tuner.

Hope this helps Bro!!

Hey Guys, Just wondering if anyone has done brake pad upgrades or changed from the stock ones. If so which brand did you go with and how are they working out/dust issues. Thanks Dan

Run stock unless you want to track then go to a more aggressive setup if you find the stock pads not to your needs
