I've been fairly happy with my Champion Heavy Duty Steel Leads, pretty sure there spiral core, and didn't cost a fortune. THere ment for taxis, lpg vehicles, 4Wd's, etc.
Next I'm trying Top Gun 10mm's though, only because they come in bright blue and only cost me $50ish. (and yes, I am aware of there bad reputation on here - but never had a problem with them in the few years they've been on moms car).

any idea why? how's it differ so much? just that i wouldn;t have thought after what almost 100 years of development that there could be that much diffference between ignition leads if you compare brands at the same price range...

i have had no prob with top gun heavy duty 8mm spiral core but i will not be getting them again as the boots are s**t, we had to push the lead into the boot with pliers just to get them on the plug.

LOL. Bosch. What a joke.

Magnecore are awsome, they're expensive, and they LAST THE LIFE OF THE VEHICLE. Unlike any of the major brands that last about 20,000km realistically untill they start to degrade.

There is a HUGE difference between spiral core leads. I suggest you read the magnecore link posted to get the truth on ignition leads as 99.99% of people get fed crap about ignition leads.

You know, people get fed info like "You need a good low resistance leads so that more power goes through the plug" What a load of toss.

XRFan101, as far as I know, you can buy them direct from http://www.magnecor.com.au/

Yeah sic thanks for that, i wasnt concerned about price of them as i know they are expensive anyway. $100 i believe a set costs. And i wont be going Top Gun as the guy who services my car is also a Hotrod builder and he is not impressed with the new design of Top Gun leads, so he reccommended that i get magnecore.

Thanks heaps for that i will chase them up.

I've used my 8mm Spiral Ice Ignition for about 12 months now and they seem fantastic, they are user friendly to not cutting yourself on the exhaust gasket when changing plugs (nice large grommet)

They're not expensive and have a pretty good rep. and also locally assembled.

During my wrecking habbits I've found 90% of Cabs have these there must be a good reason.
cheers
