    Best Spark Plug "WIRE" set for the $...and has anybody used Rockauto to get them?

    My Stealth has (and for the most part always has) had a problem with a stumble at 2500-3000 rmps, but only when cold.

    I am sending out a set of 360cc injectors out for cleaning (extra set purchased from another member) to rule out that as well.

    Looking for stock or better replacements...

    Any input is greatly appreciated

    Bob.

    Denso IK24's are an excellent plug. Not cheap but last forever. I have had them in my 99 since 06 when i bought the car and its been through 3 different setups since then(13g stock fuel/E3 16g/19T's), sat un-fired for over a year and fired right up and they are fine to this day actually.

    OEM wires should be fine.

    Well, then I'd have to notion that OEM wires while dull looking(which is just fine on a stock car) are exceptional. I have MSD's now but i only ran OEM's on my 93 and never had an issue.

    I agree the stock wires are very good at what they do and as long as they have proper resistance and no visible damage to the insulation the only benefits to changing them is aesthetics.

    Good luck that is really a dreaded problem many of us have dealt with and the solutions seem different for everyone. Remember the "Stuttering hesitating piece of shit" threads from a few years ago ?

    Bob, I wonder if your mechanical timing could be slightly off ?

    These are going on my build as they came highly recommended by many others as second to none but not the cheapest. Great looking with the factory style plug ends that seal around the plug openings in the valve covers and extra heavy boots on both ends.

    "MSD 8.5mm Super Conductor Wires"
    * 40-50 ohms per foot of resistance
    * High EMI suppression abilities
    * Tough silicone/synthetic sleeve
    * Durable, extra thick plug boots
    * Dual Crimp terminals grip the wire and conductor

    The lowest resistance and the highest EMI suppression.

    Also

    Part#: 32709

    Don't think you could go wrong with these.

    MaxNote: When checking your manual timing always back the crank counter-clockwise about an eighth of a turn from TDC then bring it back to TDC clockwise to make sure there is no slack in the belt. All your timing marks [dots on the cam gears] should line up with the arrows on the valve covers at that time. Best of luck.
