    dyno test prove that the best plugs and wires to use are OEM honda wires and NGK plugs. You should have a sticker somewhere the actual part number for the plugs.

    there are better wires out there, but they do absolutly nothing. Honda's igniton systems are good up to 10k RPM and 400 hp. If your going above that, then your going to change stuff, but for electrical shit, honda knew what they were doing.

    :yes:

    oem plugs and wires - nothing better. there was an article on www.vtec.net about plug wires. they did a dyno comparision of generic plug wires, ngk blues, and 8yr old oem wires. guess which ones gave the most power all the way up? yup. 8yr old oem sumimoto wires beat the brand new ngk blues, which are supposively better. :worthy:
