    whenever i really get on my car, which is a turbo ls/vtec, it blows one or even two wires loose from the distributer. anyone know what's causing this and especially how to fix it? i have a msd 6a ignition system, msd 8.5mm wires and ngk bkr7e plugs. if anybody needs any other info to help me, please just let me know. thanks.

    how long have you had the wires? when did you buy them. my old msd wires did that too, but the new ones i got looked slightly diferent (beefier at the connections). i put them on and they were hard as fuck to get on too, almost snapped in, so i doubt they are gonna pop off like the old ones. you could try getting a new set or get a set of nkg wires from honda, they are supposed hold very nicely, ive never heard of any problems with the ngk wires.

    wires are brand new, just put them on. what causes them to pop off, the increased spark? and would plug gap in any way effect this?
