you'll get a thousand different recomendations, just stick to the big brands and you should be fine. id oubt there's anyone whose tested them all in fair testing conditions to be able to tell you whats definately the best with proof.

go for an establised brand. Everyone's got their opinions but they're mostly old wives tales, there's no proof to back it up

Go see Joe @ Crescent motorsport in liverpool and get a set of Queensland Ignition Leads. He does a fordmods member special price for you as well. Ordered in a colour you want as well.

As for plugs just go get some iridium plugs from ford. Not sure on the part number but its the plugs run in the BA MKII XR6 turbo which is the same for BA e-gas vehicles i've heard. And they are pretty cheap as well, which is a bonus.

oh jees, the autolites are just the same as ba mkII xr6t plugs ,nothing majorly different and nothing can candle it? maybe wax it as every other high output car can definately run without them it seems :P

Queensland Ignition Leads
Eagle F1 Leads
Bosch Leads

All spiral core and 9mm+ they come in and different colours. Plugs, Iridums or Super4s, or BA MKii XR6T/LPG Plugs.

As mentioned, call Joe !

Yes they are, and I have definitely noticed a difference. I don't buy them off JMM, I get them from a crowd in Wagga, www.noelsautoparts.com.au they are about $20 cheaper, including postage. The plugs are actualy Dodge Viper plugs.

I don't know about the plugs being the same as the Ba XR6T, fuzion, but I know I have tried "standard" plugs, (for the EL I6) and the Autolites are definitely better.
