Actually, we did test them for the magazine. Versus 2-year-old stock wires, we gained around 4 peak HP (if memory serves) on our NA Ford Focus.

I think restored 4hp would be the better word, not gained.

They're supposed to give 5-10% more horsepower.

seriously doubt you will gain hp from plug wires, like Artic said you may regain lost hp from currently having old wires

That's sort of what I was hinting at, but didn't want to come right out and say it.

...right...

ANYHOO - wires are in the same category as catback exhaust, headers, and intake systems. They don't add anything, they just 'free it up".

Plus that 4% gain? I bet it's much less, I mean you said yourself they were 2 year old stock wires... which are probably up on resistance.

Let's just say that you don't make advertisers happy by publishing results that show their product works about the same as a new stock piece, and leave it at that.

Nology Hotwires

There's a site for the wires, but I guess manufacterers can write whatever they want to sell their product, it still seems like a good add on to me.

I'd say go OEM NGK, Aurora, or Magnecor (I've used all 3) over Nology "HIN Wires" lol

The thing with wires is they compliment ignition mods nicely, like an msd box, ignition coil or iridium plugs. By themselves they don't do much at all, but if you do any of the mods I just mentioned and you keep the stock wires, any benefit from those mods gets lost in the stock wires.

um...no.. hotwires suck. they are total, complete, and utter crap. The capacitive discharge crap they operate on is crap. they last less than a year. my acura toasted a set in 8 months. first, the car starts to miss, then it seems like a bad coil, then they cease to fire 8 percent of the time. They suck. Go online and look for reviews by OWNERS of the wires who actually know what theyre talking about when it comes to cars. If i remember correctly, there was a thread on the forums or online somewhere about this guy and his eclipse that had the wires and he was having problems with ignition, and so he ended up with like 2000 bucks in shop repairs replacing coils and this and that, but it turned out it was his Nology "crapwires" were the culprit.

Think about that.

Advertising is a *****
