yea the wires are for the 2.0L Zetec or the SVT engine...i have a PZEV so i am not able to use them...so i don't think it would work on the SPI. I am not sure though, maybe someone who has an SPI would know, i don't see how it would be that different. peace. and if anyone is interested, just PM me

I just did an upgrade with my wires. I went with the Ractive 9mm yellow "triple magnetic core" wires. I also have ordered a set of Denso Iridium Spark Plugs which should be on the car within a week. The Denso Denso Iridium Spark Plugs are supposed to be the best. They cost me $50 just for 4 plugs so they better be worth it!

I am looking at buying the Screamin Demon coil;. I listed a post to get some feedback from some of the other guys in the forum on it. I hope to get some great feedback on the coil!

Anyway, I just wanted to share my 2 cents since I am doing the same upgrades as you.

I just put on last night autolite double plats with focus sport wires. Run's good (see my last post under broke an engine cover bolt)

I don't see spending $50 on plugs, you're not going to get that big of gain/bang for the buck.

We have the SPI... any gain for the bucks helps! If I could throw a hampster under the hood for a gain I probably would! .... Just kidding, I love animals too!

From what I have read is the Iridium plugs are better due to smooth idle and strong response. The difference would be about $25 from plats to Iridium which is very little in the whole scheme of things. The Iridiums have a 250,000 mile life which also is twice the life of plats. More HP, longer life.... Iridiums may be worth considering.

Now if I can find a coil to match I think I'd be very happy!
