    I hear of upgraded silicone plug wires at least 8mm will reduce the possiblities of leakage, etc. and produce a more reliable spark transfer.

    I hear lots of people say stick with the Honda OEM plug wires because the work the best.

    Can anyone say if they would recommend getting any sort of upgraded plug wires and if so, which ones would you recommend ??

    What are your views ??

    MSD wire ssuck. The plug that attaches to the distributor pops off, they don't fit well.

    Same thing with Magnecore's. You've gotta put zipties on the rubber plugs at the distributor to keep them tight, and they fit REALLY loosely on the head...wish I had some OEM's.

    Some swear by them, but if I spent $120 on plug wires...I would too. IMO they are a waste of cash, and clutter you engine bay with more wires.
