Default 2nd set of bad wires

i installed a WGA a few weeks ago and after one pass my pt started breaking ,spitting and popping so i asumed it was the WGA. After a week of banging my head against the wall i found that one of my spark plug wires had gone bad again. so i now have new plugs and wires and i am back to installing the WGA again , this time i feel very good about the gains i will have.

WGA info :

still a month or so out from full production but the price will be $160.00 for the billet WGA

thanks tommy

I always felt that the second set of wires would always be a set of MSD copper wound 8.5 mm high pro with a new MSD coil.
Why go back for the weak stockers (kinda like putting the Goodyear O.E. tires on after the first set wears out).[8)]

Because DCX is paying for them? I'm on my second set in 15,000 miles.

I like the 7.5 MM MOPAR performance wires cause my daughter had them on her Neon and they are still going strong after 60,000 miles! I also like that they very good looking and have sturdy boots and I like blue too! They also are very kind to the radio!! And they cost less than $50 ($39+$10) delivered to my house!

I got mine on e bay, shipped from Lakeland Chrysler FL. $38.95 plus shipping = 51.43. IF gas wasn't so high() it would have been cheaper to drive there.
