    I am looking to see what everyone likes to run for spark plug wires.

    I have a brand new OEM coil that will be used.(unfortunately,I bought an MSD ignition coil and msd wires back when I was drinking the sewing site koolaid)

    I am either going to get brand new OEM stock wires and call it a day or choose some high quality aftermarket option.

    I currently have a set of MSD wires that I have not put on the car, I like the Magnecor KV85.

    OEM wires and coil the best and they have been used without issue on 300 and 400 Hp race car MINI's.

    Since you have the wires I'd go ahead & use them. Sell of that red coil on the other site.

    I've used oem wires & zooty wires. No difference as far as I can tell. Well the zooty ones looked cooler.
