Currently running Bosch leads in the ED without any problems.....They were in the car when I bought it around 2 years ago. Don't know how old they are but they are still working well so I'm happy with 'em.

thicker means slightly less resistance and higher current capacity

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.

just for your info the brand thats regarded the best by most people and used by racing teams is MSD you can get leads made up to order and they are excellent but only worth it on a modified engine

Yeah I looked into them and nearly died when he gave me a price. For under half the price I got my 10mm top guns which do the job just fine :D

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.
