Are they worth the money??? I see them for like 150++ for plug wires....daaayyum!!! IF they re worth it Ill save and get em...but whats the next best thing I can get for my d16y8....???

There is no real science behind capacitance discharge wires -unless you count the psychology of sales- I posted a detailed explanation on this sometime back but the gist is this: They look great out in the open at one atmosphere and at 0 RPMs but your engine does not run at 1 ATM and 0 RPM!! The stocks are 3-6mo throw away, accel thundersports are pretty good (have been for me and a few others at least) but forget am or fm. The only wires that I know are worth it are the Magnecor wires. Their website is quite informative and even -a rarity these days- factual. Wires will not make you horsepower or torque but they will make whatever you make now far more efficient -read fuel economy- just like good plugs.
AGAIN, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE THE NOLOGY HOTWIRES WORTH THE MONEY
for 80 bucks -if you have a CD player or a cassette- i'd go with the accel thundersport. Incidentally, if you send too much amperage (which is what you want to increase as that will increase the temperature and energy of the spark and thus the speed of propagation of the flame front) down too little wire, you will very rapidly fry the wires. Thus, if you went through the trouble of getting the external coil, now is not the time to blink!! Dead wires, whether dead from the outside in (heat) or the inside out (amperage and voltage) are just as dead. Oh, I should mention that as a wire gets hotter, its resistance increases if I recall correctly, by the fourth power (Cation, check?) so...thicker, high quality wires.
