Ignition wire types

This is from the Magnecore website:

Interesting read - I think I'll break out my electrical engineering textbook to see if it jives.

Anyway, does anyone know the construction type of the Toyota wires? I've heard a few people on this board say to stick with them anyway.

Did you put an aftermarket coil on? Also you might have to gap the plugs a little more than stock. Not too much though. I think mine are gapped to .38 or so.

I've got the TRD wires as well. Work great. Especially that once I installed them, they blew my clutch.

Plug wires are plug wires. Some are just better quality than others and it's all about personal preference. It's like you think the td06sh is great, but a t3/t4 hybrid is even better from my point of view(this is just an example).

So I stick with TRD. Can't go wrong there.

No, I've got the stock coil, and plugs are gapped at .035.
My tach is funny below 2g also. Something to do with the MSD using the tach sig. :shrug: I will figure it out eventually.
