    What is the major difference in HEI vs. Points style plug wires? I was looking at the different sets of Taylor Spiro Pros on Summit.


    Gracias in advance

    My neighbor accross the street works for http://www.nology.com/ which makes spark plug wires with built in capacitors. They store the spark energy untill it reaches ionization and then release it, supposably 300 times more powerful. The Nology wires are pricey but having an "in" helps. I'd like to eval a set and see if they are really all that.

    Haha, thats exactly what I told them! If plug wires were like heads and lasted a good 100,000 miles I would spend the extra money no problem but not on a regularly replaced item unless I was bracket racing or something justifiable. The guy said they have a lifetime warranty though... so I'm going to go find the fine print, header boots and all!

    Nology are the hot ticket on the Porsches...

    OEMs (any really) are $225... so Nology's are a "good" price! /forums/images/icons/confused.gif

    If you have an in, I am interested in a set of the Nology's for my P-car. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
