I just went downstairs to measure my used Screamin Demon wires (about 35,000 miles on them).

Cylinder 1: 600 ohms
Cylinder 2: 600 ohms
Cylinder 3: 500 ohms
Cylinder 4: 250 ohms

I have about 10,000 miles on my Thundervolts now... I'll measure them this weekend.

So the Taylors has ten times less resistance than the SD?

The Taylor measurements I made are when they were brand new out of the box. I'd need to measure some LiveWires out of the box, and the Taylors at 35k miles to make a real comparison.

Got the Taylor Thunder Volts and new AZFS22C plugs on today. Easier start up and much better idle.

11,114 miles / 8 months exactly on the Taylor Thundervolts:

Cylinder 1: 80 ohms
Cylinder 2: 70 ohms
Cylinder 3: 60 ohms
Cylinder 4: 75 ohms

I must not have had a good connection when I tested cylinder 1 wire the first time since I'm showing a drop in resistance of 10 ohms, which I really doubt is possible. Not sure why the smallest wire's resistance went up, but I'm not really complaining with these numbers.

Also, I don't know if any of you have tried removing the Thundervolts, but they are REALLY in there. Far more than I can say for the junky loose-fitting LiveWires.

No problem. I'm interested to see how a new set of LiveWires measures.

I tested the stock Motorcraft wires I still had lying around. ~38k miles on them and about 5 years old. They have been sitting in my basement for about a year.

Cylinder 1: 12000 ohms
Cylinder 2: 15000 ohms
Cylinder 3: 10000 ohms
Cylinder 4: 6000 ohms

Hi guys, I'm a rook, so please bear with- but I just bought an 04 svt 3 door w/ the euro package, and after much research here on the site, have decided to make my first mod the Taylor wires and Motorcraft plugs. The Motorcraft plugs don't come pre-gapped, correct? Be gentle now, I'm new here and I bruise easily.
