I'm still trying to figure out the first word of your sentance. Are you trying to say "what the f u * k" ? And who cares what combination of wires and plugs i put in MY car. MY car performs and has not let me down yet.

Yes, he is saying What the eff. It matters when you want to get the most out of the car. With the proper wires, plugs and coil. You'll get better milage, more power, better overall performance.

Cheap wires you get subpar performance to less of what the engine can actually do. You put on. A CIA then say who gives a crap what wires and plugs I use?

Honestly you should and your car would love it. Massive has performance package for the spi which gives you larger 8mm wires, MSD coil and motorcraft cooper plugs. It's very affordable and you will have the top of the line performance out of your ignition system.

If you don't want to opt for the ignition package, you can just get the 8mm wires from massive you get a stronger and more reliable spark. They are cheaper that those subpar wires you bought at autozone.

To top things off they come in various colors to help at some character to the engine bay.

Massivespeedsystems.com

They have these companies advertising at the top of the screen on the forums because they specialize in focus parts. The owners and reps for the companies are members on here too.

Massives CEO Karl Truty, holds a focus meet at his house in Harvard, Ill. called "Focus in Field". I made the trip last year such a great guy. Fun ass meet, so worth the drive.

So why couldn't that be said in the first place. I just didn't have the money for top of the line wires. I got the ngk plugs for cheap. I'm planning on changing all of it as soon as i can.

I understand because you've mostly had crap from stupid people on here, but please try to be a little less defensive and justifying of what you do to your car. I wasn't putting down your choice of wires. NGK ignition components are more associated with Japanese/import vehicles. They make good stuff, but that's all I meant by it. If you want to call BS, I have them on my truck.

You don't normally put autolite/champion/motorcraft/bosch in a Toyota and you don't normally put NGK/Nippondenso in a Ford. Nothing wrong with it, just not the norm. They all work fine...except Bosch which, sadly, doesn't go in anything.

I just found it an odd choice. I must forgotten my smiley.


Headlights look good too. I'll probably opt for the black ones if they make those.
