I have ICE leads with non resistor NGK plugs & can't complain about them at all on my EB. I tried a few brands of leads & plugs, before getting the ICE leads & NGK non resistor plugs, now the eb runs really good.

ICE rebuild my dizzy & supplied all ignition hardware for my Turbo torana project as well.

Cheers

to put it simply all ICE leads are 'GAS' leads and really its your plug selection that will be the difference when using there product.

I would be interested in seeing the performance of the top gun's.
As previously stated older gas systems are less efficient there for requiring more maintaince and upkeep ie; changing plugs and leads more regularly.

Well more to the point, the ICE leads are low resistance. I think the plug i'm using atm is a BP5ES, been in the car for about 20k kms now, look close to new. The ICE leads are just as old. That's about 5mths of driving for me. I have a SVI system in my EB, EasyJet, and had minor issues with backfiring/cross firing with resistor plugs & a couple of brands of leads that didn't last me long. No further issues with new plugs & leads.

I wouldn't mind getting a new coil & a booster from ICE too, boosts the coil voltage up a couple of volts & should give a fatter spark. I think the Bosch coil i have on atm will handle upto 16v input anyway. A booster was recommended for my Torana, but i'm yet to get the engine running. Been too busy. Maybe by early next year i'll have it running & see if i need a booster. It's a 173ci red 6cyl, T04B turbo, 440 GRA, ICE custom Electric dizzy, ICE coil, ICE leads & non resistor plugs.

Cheers
