They seem ok. Haven't heard anything bad about them.



I wanted these:

http://store.yahoo.com/cranecams/8cylapwit90d.html



Crane Cams 8.5mm wires. Universal fit (i relocated a coil, and the lx92 coils use a different terminal than the mazda ones). The lnk above is for a V8. Want to split a set with me? 69.99 USD, free shipping to USA (not canada unfortunately). I will pay you 1/2 + shipping via USPS + some for your troubles. Only problem is crimping the terminal, you need a pretty hefty wire crimp tool to get a good connection. I'm not sure if they include a terminal for mazda coils, but if they don't you could remove the old terminal off your old wires and reuse them.



The instructions are attached on how to assemble them.



So for 35 USD i think that is a pretty good price.

I had the accel ones before. The silicone insulation isn't ver high quality, netiher is the boot for the terminal. THe terminal wasn't crimped on properly, so after i changed plugs a year later the terminal fell off.

do the 10mm wires interfer with the radio at all? I need that radio to stay alive on the long drives home after work. Also is there a noticiable gain from the 10mm over the 8.5mm wires?

i doubt its anything noticeable until you start stretching out your HP limits, im aiming for mid 500's as a base level so im going with 10mm just so i dont have to try swapping them out later to see if they fix something possibly cause by too small of a wire.
