the different in the size Lik 6mm or 9mm is how thick the insulation is around the core of the lead and thicker the lead does not usually mean it is any better then a thinner one. All it does is stop the spark form leaving the lead where is is not meant to. The thicker leads are ment for high energy ignition systems. But i do have 9mm but and would not go any larger as it has not got any benefit.

Good point to there is no real benifit in going higher sized leads so dont bother. But 9mm is a good size :wink:
