I got the big top gun 10mm on my rocket to be honest all I have every really used is Top Gun they have never let me down. Might be just me but I always seem to have trouble with any other brand ie. braking down or you try to pull them off and they are stuck and you ether pull the clip out of the holder or snap the lead off. :x. Al tho I cant say I have ever tried NGK leads but for bang for buck you cant go passed there spark plugs they are rather good. So if there leads are anything like there plugs I would have to say they would be good.


Mmmmm... hear a lot of negative about TopGun actually... A set was on my mates EF, 2 leads were f**k and shorting out, however we dont know how long they had been fitted, but the car only had 200,000km on it.

I'd rate Eagle over Top Gun, and MSD higher again, though you do pay through your nose for MSD.
Bosch leads have always been pretty good in my experience, as have Motorcraft.... Though I will be replacing my Motorcrafts with Eagles.


yeah its strange some people have had bad experiences with topgun, ive had quite a few sets and never had a problem, they must have a bad batch everynow and again

how much you pay for the top gun 10mm


Umm I got them off of Ebay rather cheap I think it was like 80 bucks brand new to my door cant quite remember it is from the guy that sells the top gun leads on there I just asked him if he stocks them for EF.

I can say I have used Eagle too and dont have a bad word to say about them. But the reason I love my top guns is when I first had my turbo setup I had the good old 8mm on and I didn't have it all heat shielded properly and was driving along and my car started misfiring and carrying on. I thought what the f**k is going on here popped the bonnet and I had melted the crap out of 2 of my leads one of the was melted right through and just had the core left. Wasn't to happy and a fair way from home so out come the electrical tape wrapped it around them and good as new drove for another 5 hours no problem. :lol:
