Want to dress up your engine bay? Changing your plug wires is a simple and fairly economical way to do that. As you can see from the pic below, it makes a pretty big difference, and it only takes minutes to replace the OEM wires. I wouldn't expect much performance difference despite the various claims of hotter sparks, etc... I was only interested in adding some color, and an opportunity presented itself on the Marketplace at, so I jumped on the chance!

Before installing, lay the wires out and sort them from smallest to largest like this.

Then just unplug each wire from the engine. May have to wiggle from side to side. Make sure the engine is cold, and don't do this while the engine is running!!

You can see the spark plug here. In case you've never seen aftermarket plug wires, they are basically long extension tubes with wires.
