I've been thinking about getting some new spark plug wires, so I was looking around for some definitive proof of improved performance: dyno runs.
Unfortunately, all I found was a test done with a Honda and NGK wires.

It actually shows the performance plug wires decreased performance, and made the hp output more rough.

I've been considering the FSWerks wires, and I was planning on just keeping my stock spark plugs as they are.
Now, the dyno was for just one brand of spark plug wire, but for something that reduced ohms and power output, you have to wonder if "performance" wires are just a myth.

Anyone have input on this?
