Spark plug wires for stock tii: any recommendations?


Recommended Posts

Hey Jim -

Careful with the Bav Auto wires. I bought a set years ago. The boots fit really really tight into the head. I actually had to carve mine down a bit to get them to snap on correctly.

I was much happier with the set that I bought from Ireland Engineering. Fit way better. I keep the BavAuto wires in the trunk as "back up", but I've been very happy with the IE wires.

Jason -

Those look exactly like the stock Bosch ones I have in my car. Per the ebay motors ad, they are:

Made in Germany by Karlyn-STI, renowned for plug wires.

They have been manufactured the best plug wires for over 50 years.

I've never heard of Karlyn-STI.

I thought the boots looked better than I remember (bosch) and the rubber tip on the resistors is interesting...Although I know someone who achieved the same thing with heater hose on the tips.
