To make a long story short, I bought these for my car not long after I had it. I didn't know much at all about cars then and I thought I needed new plug wires so I picked these up. I blew the motor a while back and got a hatch so the car sat for a long time, put a sohc zc vtec in it and boosted it and used those plug wires again and the #1 plug wire has pretty much failed. When under any kind of load, it stops giving spark at all. I through my stock plug wires back on there which have over 80k on them and it's running perfect now. FUCK APC shit. Just for the record, I don't own anything else like that. I got rid of it all a long time ago lol.

APC=American Piece of Crap or American Phucking Crap. Ngk's the shit but I don't have money for their wires right now nor do I even need them. Like I said, I put the stockers back on and no more missing or stumbling at all. I had only been 16 for like 2 months when I bought the APC wires lol. I think I just liked em b/c they were blue and they were OMG...10.5mm wires! lol Anyway, yea...complete shit.

yep that's cause NGK's the shit. I've always used their plugs. They're great. Plug wires were great on my B16. I'll get some later.

man this is hilarious.. finally someone said something about that brand. i laugh my ass off when people pull up to me with APC stickers all over their car. i just dont get it when the car is a honda and has these disgraceful parts and labels/stickers on them. but yea ngk's are good, and make sure ur running same spark plugs. i run an even setup on ignition parts. mismatch parts or better spark plugs but shitty wires can cause problems. the stock plugs/wires for most hondas but brand new would be best.
