Hey all,

My engine's skipping a little, so time for new plugs & leads I think.

Any suggestions on the best ones to use, and where to find them in Perth?

I've seen these 'Top Gun Heavy Duty' silicone leads at Auto One, $59.95 a set, rated at 315 deg C ...are these OK?

As for plugs, I really have no idea, so any suggestions would be great!

yeah, it's an important link in the ignition chain. It would probs pay to do a search of the 6cyl forum, it's come up heaps of times in the past bro

By Gas, I assume you mean leads for LPG?

Where can I get these leads & NGK plugs in Perth?

DO NOT BUY TOPGUN LEADS!

i made that mistake.. heard people opinions thought i would try them anyway..

went to push the lead onto the plug and the boot just kept sliding down the lead and the plug wouldnt even reach the contact inside the boot anymore..

lucky i took em back and got a refund and went and got some manticore? or something spiral leads from repco.

if its just a stocker then i wouldnt bother with leads over 8mm

my recomendation to you is a set of NGK Leads and Plugs

As Gaz said DO NOT buy Top Gun leads they are s**t. Personally i dont like bosch leads but thats just from my experiences with them.

Can pick up a set of NGK Leads and Plugs from burson, repco, etc for a round $60-$70for the pair

And because theyre a common part for a common carthey'll more than likely have em on the shelf
