I bought these wires six months ago and they are failing. I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me a replacement set and asked that I send these back for inspection. They have what look like slight dimples in the wire which made me wonder about quality when I put them in. I suspect that the wire used to make this set was defective, but before I install the new ones I want to replace the exhaust gasket to avoid cooking them. One concern I have, aside from the gasket, is the air injection manifold. It holds a lot of heat and could be part of the problem. Has anyone else run into this problem with this type of manifold, or was it likely just faulty cable and or a worn out heat shield gasket?


I am about to pull the manifold to replace the gasket and install an LM-1 in the Y-pipe but it is hard to get excited about putting it back on. I did purchase a replacement manifold, but it had a crack, so I sent it back.


I sure wish there was one for sale locally, but nothing listed in the classifieds...

(yup, I am trolling)

These are Kingsborne wires. I chose the 8mm set.


Excellent customer service. Sent the replacement set right away on good faith that I will send these back, using the supplied pre-paid envelope. I believe they make a quality product... just wondering what happened to this set.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
