which plug leads?
« on: June 30, 2013, 10:28:23 AM »
Couldn't really find a specific section for this so I stuck it in here.  Is it worth upgrading to magnecor etc or just replace with or stuff. Need to change leads,dizzy cap,rotor arm and coil as its missfiring on boost. Its a tt225 sierra btw.

Motocraft (original ford) or ford motorsport leads are still the best.

I'll check at work tomorrow and see if there still available. Probably be a fortune if they are. Engine mountings were 125 quid each where as vibratechnics ones weren't much more for the pair.

Seen a few tests on leads over the years. Conclusion power wise is you're talking differences of no more than 5 bhp for around 200bhp which dyno runs vary more than that run to run normally anyway so there is nothing in it.

So just go for the best made lead you can find that suits your engine & forget about the hype!

Yeah I would go for Ford leads too if i had to buy new.

I use both Magnecor and Ford M'Sport leads on different cars and don't have a problem with either.
