That depends on what plugs you put in.

Nah, they're good for 10k at least, depending on how you drive it.

Ok been reading all this and had to do some testing , so I got a set of FR , Tylor (which I feel suck for wires) MSD , stock , and went on the dyno with a 03 SVT Focu making 152HP did all testing at the same temp and as close as I could

They all made the same power 152.?? , the wires were all free so I didnt have to choose form price , My self I run the FR wires and have for years

Next I went on a drive , went the same place on all test , same speed and had a buddy do the driving he didnt have a clue what I was doing other then tell me what one feels better , smoother , he is the guy I use for this because he dont care and gives me a truithfull opinion , I have tried to catch him many times with things like say I changed something and didnt to see if he would react

All the testing on the wires was the same , he couldnt tell a thing so the taylor wires being a wonder wire is busted

I dont like taylor there claimes for breakdown I have found to many times to be a false claim and after they have been run for some time they get worse , this is the first taylors I have messed with in years and still nothing , BUT that doesent surprise me a good set of stock wires work very well

Tom
