$700!
it cant cost that much can it?
must be gold plated or something!

the genuine leads used to be at that price but they have come down still not enough to be realistic, we sell & use Queensland ignition leads for all our Ford customers I'v put a set on my AU II 5.0 ltr about 3 years ago & no problems with them, the only thing that is fidily is taking of the metal shields & reusing them, that is if you want...

9mm spiral 5.0ltr coil pack type .....$295.00
9mm spiral 5.0ltr dizzy type.....$185.00
9mm spiral 4.0ltr dizzy & coil pack $85.00 (all + p&h)

Ride: AU3 XR8

Power: 191 rwkw

i ended up going out to my old local spares at Canley Vale and I got NGK iridiums for $14.80 each, top gun leads (coil i think) for $139 and a oil filter for $15.
It was more thatn $100 cheaper than Repco!
Had some spare money so I got parts to service my missus Pulsar aswell!

Cars running more smoother now.

Wow, how come leads are so expensive for your car?

My ef 6cyl cost $55 for 9mm peformance leads, i thought the 8's would only be a little more, or is there more to modern cars than i thought?

as cars get more advanced the service parts get more expensive,eg. 1970 ford,1990 ford,2000 ford,2007 ford, if you look up the price of the same parts for each yearand the same motor to be on par.
