These were from Maryland Speed. They had the best price. Now I think I know why they were cheaper. I didn't know there were 2 styles. I was pissed that the coating had to be messed up.

The new style supercedes the older version and was supposed to be changed months ago back in 2012. You should call Kooks directly; they're friendly and helpful.

Only CEL light for misfires because the ignition wires randomly keep coming disconnected by themselves. I have checked them all and they are all on but randomly they come off. It's like the motor twist and then the wire fall off the spark plug end only.
That shouldn't happen at all. you can tell if the wires are on correctly when you feel and hear a click.

I know! I wish I could figure this out. I've triple checked them snapping on the plugs.

Good to know. I was going to get mine coated to help with underhood temps, I will now wait until after install to verify any fitment issues and then remove and get them coated next winter. That spark plug wire thing would drive me bonkers.

How do I get rid of these codes? Does it need to be tuned?

If you buy a programmer can you revert back to stock so the manufacturer can't see the tune. Will the car pass emissions with a tune?
