Hey guys, first time user here.
I looked around a bit and I didn't find this info, please forgive me if it's already posted and I missed it.

I have a 96 metro LSi, and I just boght some new bosch platnum +2' s for it, and really think I should put new wires on before I do. Anyone have good recomendations for what I should get. I am thinking I should buy 8-8.5 mm, But how important is brand? And what brands will carry reasonably priced sets for my car?

Thanx for the help.

-Chris Hein

Not sure if they will fit perfect but MURR on this board has Aurora wires for sale for the GT's and GTi's. You could try contacting him. IMO any decent quality wire will be OK. You can get wire kits that allow you to cut your wire to length but I would advise against it unless you really know how to do it well.

PS. Welcome to the board.

aurora makes them for the 3 cylinders as well .. they're quite inexpensive for what you get .. stainless steel wound race leads, not to be confused w/ just thicker regular wires.

NGKs are a good second best.

From what I've seen on the dyno... don't like cars with Magnecores.

nothing wrong with Magnecor wires, but unless you got some serious mods on the car, it's a wate of money to pay for them when you can get NGK ( which are awesome I think) or Aurora for way less.
