any one have a heads up on any 16v plug wire sets?
I would prefer bosch, oe and all that, but I would like to avoid paying $130 for set.
I will however do whatever I have to for the health and longevity of my trusty steed.
hi ho silver.
Not sure about the price, but probably cheaper than Bosch. I think these guys actually make alot of the aftermarket wires and just stencil the company's name on them. http://www.kingsborne.com/800.htm
My bro has them on his 86 SPG Saab.
Ditch the stock!! Go with some nice wires!! Nology uses stock OE boots for the best fit and seem to be the choice for aftermarket ignition systems. Stock wires are also too thin. I got my Nologys for about 170 directly through them. Might as well upgrade for a lil bit more.
THat does seem to be a reasonable price for a bosch wire set. I found these prices through either the audiworld web site or the s-car.org web site, I forget which. I also found the just the terminations with no wires, new for 20 a piece. I might make my own.
Somehow through the years I've acquired 3 sets of 16v wires (all bosch). Any ideas on how to test them to see if their good or not, maybe with a DVOM or something? I know one of the sets was good when I took it off my Jetta to swap in some pretty red neuspeed ones. I could sell the used ones (if they're good) pretty cheap. I guess if the wires are shot, I can pick up some 8mm wire from the local auto shop an make some nice beefy wires with cleaned up used ends. Think anyone would be interested in buying a set of those? Other than that, I've found the aftermarket tuners have cheaper sets than what the Bosch go for, and they seem to last just as long.
