Ok so i finally bit and upgraded to the Magnecors.
I honestly was not expecting anykind of improvement...and man was i wrong!
The idling in my car is unbelievably smooth and the acceleration is even smoother.
I dont know if the old wires were bad or if these Magnecors are just that much better.
But I really like it.  Smiley

Surprisingly I got the same results from the moss motors wires I bought on impulse because they were on sale.

I have to admit I wished for the same effect from new NGK wires and plugs  ...but alas, idle was about the same as before.

Much of people's improvements might just be from replacing old wires with new wires as I did on my Civic and felt a huge improvement. I'd like to see how much more they can really handle. I run a set too, but for high power its likely better to go with 4 coilpacks if you can control them.

Sorry for reviving this, but I believe this update was worth it.  Back in July, the cobalt wires left me stranded, the reason was obvious


The lifetime warranty came through for me, and I've been running the replacements since (but keep the stocks in the trunk now).  Looking at the failed set, they were a little warped since they never sat perfectly flush.

Hi Guy's,

I'm looking to upgrade my wires as part of this winters service on my 2004 MSM, which just received the FM LE upgrades.   Lot's of positive comments on the Magnecor wires and the Begi Wire Kits (Great Value). 

My questions are :
1) Looks like Magnecor only supplies the two wires, and not the 2 COP boots ? 
      - What do you Magnecor fans do about the 2 Cop Boots ?
2) Are the OEM Wires and Boots NGK or Denso ? 
      - It looks like Denso has both the 2-wires and the 2 cop boots for the 04 MSM.
3) Any other suggestions on plug wires and COP Boots for a 2004 MSM ?

Thanks !
