Unless your running a race only tubo setup stock are fine. There's no gain from useing anything else in most cases, kind of like putting 100+ unleaded in a stock car.

NGK is the concensus. No, there isn't much of a power difference between sets of wires. The power differences come when you switch from old wires to new ones.

you got it. New wires are better than old worn out wires, its a simple concept. Unless you are running a MASSIVELY upgraded ignition system, anything other than OE/NGK wires are a waste of money.

the more expensive wires doesnt really gain any hp but it does help in reliability abit. Thats why i put msd 8.5's on mine because the regular cheap wires you by (valuecraft) i think are just cheap and the connection isnt good at all. They will want to ride up and come off of the sparkplug.

really the only time you will see gains with plug wires if yours are worn out. just get stock wires. they are made by ngk.

What does those NGK wires cost in US? I could get OEM ones for around ~60EUR/~$80 here from dealer, expensive? Asked Magnecor, 125EUR for stock 8.5mm and 139EUR for custom-made for Bosch Motorsport wasted-spark coilpack (I have one), I think that's insane price for a few pieces of wire.
Aftermarket supports seems to be pretty low here on Finland on these..
