WOW! You are spending WAY too much money. I got the Magnecore 8.5 wires ($54.99) and my GT ran like a bat out of hell. A lot of people are very happy with them. Check them out here

Well you have to read there site. they are a little different than standard plug wires. Each wire has a ground and a capacitor in each wire. They claim on ther site they produce a much hotter spark....Check the site out at: www.nology.com

I went with the MOPAR high pr\erformance plug wires and I am very happy with them. Saved me a few bucks over non factory plug wires and I think they perform and last very well. $174 for wires seems well extreme!![)]

Race and Street used to carry them but stopped. I asked Maggie, and she in so many words just basicaly told me that the Nology wires are garbage. They do nothing in terms of measureable performance and you are paying for the Nology name. I got Crane Firewires from them. I believe her because they are honest vendors. Other vendors would rather sell me $170 wires than $49 wires, plus they had a special that month and she gave them to me for $40 shipped! Stick with the Cranes or the Magnecores; you'll be glad you did.

Same here. Can the Nology wires beat 25 ohms/ft? [:I]

The ground and capacitor are NOT for performance. They are for noise reduction in the electricl system. Ignition systems that use coils are putting out a HUGH eletrical field when that coil revs up at 36,000 volts and it caues feedback.(What happens when you run a vacuum cleaner when your TV is on) The extra ground is there to direct some of the feedback back to battery and the capacitor is there to help absorb what is left over. Spark plugs also have capacitors for the same reason. Even the spark plug box my iridium plugs came in said "5000K ohm capacitor for low noise", NOT "capacitor for higher performance" It's a marketing scam. Stick with Crane or Magnacore.

they have always been big in the import market, i have a friend with the nology wires on a japanese import motor that is turbo in his crx. He loves them.

They are supposed to have stronger spark, the advertisements and literature that come with the product and that they distribute at showes etc. all claim a hotter better spark. They dont mention anything with supression and noise frequiencies. I cant say personally how good they are.

I run magnecore wires

I must say I am very confused why you would want a burst of electrical energy to flash back to a slow battery. If anything this seems like a bad idea, I understand the cap, but I truly don't understand the ground back to the battery. Maybe I am missing something.
