The link Gonzo posted is where I purchased my Magnecor's and I love 'em. If you go this way make sure you gap your plugs down to .040 - .045 from the stock .050.

If you're referring to my comment about dropping the gap from factory spec it's because in my experience, and the experience of several people I know personally, the performance is noticably improved when using low impedance wires and tighter gapped plugs. This improvement is even greater when running at higher boost, such as with Stage 1. Passing on the freeway, specifically the 60mph to 90mph jump, is just astonishing with this setup.

I am sure that I read on this forum that Chrysler has sent a bulletin to the dealer ships regarding this matter to start gapping at 0.40 to 0.45 also. Don't have time for a search but someone has posted along this line. Of course as mention people have done this with noticeable improvements.

TaylorMade, I'm not sure there's much of a correlation between the performance enhancement of the Magnecor's and a tighter plug gap on a turbo vs your non turbo car. As for better gas mileage.....don't ask me! My mileage stinks unless I get on the freeway with the cruise control set at 70mph. But that's too boring for me!
