well today i ordered my 10mm topgun leads, anyway i phoned autobarn to ask them they quoted me 170 i was like wtf thats a bit much, so when i went to supercheap they said 130 i told them why so much diffence in price they said apprently theres 10mm topgun preformance leads thats why there more then just the normal 10mm ones

is this true? and it deff wudnt be worth getn 10mm preformance ones unless heavy modded or forced induction has been done is that correct?

yeah then you should get a set of ngk iridium spark plugs ( they supposedly have a much stronger spark but i haven't gotten mine yet so i can't talk from experience)
then you should notice quite a difference, and it should then be running smoother too

i wudnt say iridums man there overkill for spark plugs, i got some ngk plugs from a prefomance shop up here, they do all high power cars with blowers turbos ect and he uses these same plugs for all the cars, he told iridums just may last longer but no way worth the buck, ive alrdy got them ngks in btw

not by much mate they all have a firm price which would only be a little less than what you'd be paying, so they would be about the same any where
