the reason most leads turn white is heat, as most aftermarket leads don't come with heat shields, the black round bit of plastic cable tied to the leads like motorcraft ones.
easy to over come just buy a pack of heat shields, abt $5, and put them on your leads where ever they may be touching the engine or other heat source, you can bunch your leads up i.e. 123 and 456 etc.

Yeah i just found that out a couple of days ago lol, all of my leads are bunched together very untidy and they touch the rocker cover too. I wouldnt expect any set of leads to last with that kind of heat being forced onto them.:roll:

Should be good once i get my TOP GUN spiral cores thou. hopefully the guy workin on my car can install 10mm leads for me too. :D

I heard that 10mm is just overkill and 8mm are good enough

Yeah they are good leads if taken care of, dont let the heat get to em.. Reason that mechanics say dont get 10mm leads is because they are a b**ch to install im guessin. :? Even 9mm would be a bit tricky sometimes lol im not sure thou... never installed leads before :roll:

as if there isnt some sort of power drain, or something, there is a lot of diffrence between 8mm and 10.5mm.

also whats the going price for a set?

went to find out a price on the eagle leads today from autobahn, they are about $75 a set for 8.5mm. also they guy made a point of asking if they are for a race car and informing me that these leads are stickly for track use only, he made it sound like i could get defected for them??
