Yes I am running an AU, check out the photo gallery. I did'nt personally buy them or install them. Mark at IT'S Performance added them to my engine build.

Ask around the auto shops? May cost $100 or so.

I think that the thicker the insulation that it will resist crossfiring to the head and avoid misfires.

Nice car man....kinda makes me want to clean my tool ridden car.

genuine leads are where it's at. unless you have upgraded the ignition system you won't need anything more than that.
if you don't want genuines the next best thing is bosch.
never hurts to coat em in convoluted tube either. makes em last a bit longer cos it prevents crossfiring

Genuine leads is where its at? Scotty?! what world u living on ..

Most especially if your on gas you definately need spiral core leads..


I run Queensland Ignition Leads (9mm Spiral Cores). Previously i was running Eagle F1 9mm Spiral Cores..

the Queesland Ignition Leads found to be slightly better and for the same price why the hell not!. Joe from Crescent Motorsports is the NSW Distributor for them here so give him a call and mention your from FM (02) 9600-6229.

Make sure you get decent leads, genuine schmenuine, you want something that'll last and is good quality regardless of the product

I have been running GasMaster leads from Mews Autogas here in Perth for over 100k's with absolutely not a hint of a backfire. Recommended!

i think your at the point where you need a real mechanic to look at your car.
or your going to spend alot more wasted money trying to fix it your self
