Re: which plug wires should i get

i dont have turbo its just a wish. everybody says just get a vr4 but i got my stealth at a junkyard for 1100$ with a bad engine and put about 1400$in it so if i could find a supercharger kit thatd be great. but havnt heard good things about the ones that fit but id be plenty happy with runnin 14s and its an auto. so i might just do some of the things you did and see what i come up with was the under drive pulley worth it.

Re: which plug wires should i get

"I looked at several after-market spark plug wires but ended up buying OEM.
The main reason to get after-market wires is because you want to dress up the engine
compartment with a wire color other than black. The resistance per length of wire is
less on most after-market wires but nobody has been able to document any
noticeable change in performance. The stock ignition system does not make enough
spark to require heavier wires. Several people have added after-market ignition
amplifiers but the results do not appear to be worth the large cost in my opinion.
The aftermarket coil kits do seem to allow a larger spark gap with out spark blowout
So I will probably do this upgrade in the near future"

Taken from John Monnin's plug comparison...if you want to read more, here is the link:

Your 1996 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 is the 92nd out of the 315 that were made that year. Only 21 of which are exactly identical.

Magnecor KV85 8.5mm sitting in a box for about 11 months now. As soon as I get my tax refund I'm getting a tune up and getting these installed.

MSD has the lowest resistance of any wire out there. Pair that with a non-resistor plug and you get the best possible spark without better coils.
