Wanting to upgarde the leads on the windsor.

I'd like some opinions on which are good brands and why, price etc.

Also could I expect any power gains from new/better leads?

I have heard that NGK, Bosch & splitfire/spitfire? leads are good.

Any thoughts?

Pat.

Have always used the Top Gun leads when I caould. No real reason other than reliability and longevity. Never really considered the 10mm leads over 8s. Just couldn't see any point. :wink:

no difference
