Nology wires or H.P. Bavarian wires?
 
Hi, I just want to change my ignition wires, but I don't know what could be better for my
E36 The nology hot wires or the Bavarian High Performance wires ?. Any opinion will be welcome.

I would stick with OEM ones buddy

Unless you've upgraded your ignition coils and spark plugs, buying high performance wires would be throwing money away for no gain. The OEM BMW wires are more than sufficient for the stock ignition system.

True true

Please they work with such small tollerences that performance leads will probably be more trouble than good at high RPM

Not nesscesarily, Nology wires are pretty amazing. I had them on my eclipse turbo and it made a noticable difference with a completely stock ignition system otherwise.

Placebo effect.

It depends on the OEM ignition wires. On an Eclipse, sure, perhaps the OEM one's weren't that great. AFAIK these cars are pretty quality in that regard, and without having upgraded other parts of your engine, as well as your ignition system, significantly, I can't imagine them helping much at all.

The eclipse stock wires are NGK, they are good wires

Pirate_copy 09-02-2007 10:12 AM

Dont think we got the eclipse over here

Made by mitsubishi, The engine potential is phenomenal but also extremely tricky to work with. One thing goes wrong and it's all down hill from there.

used nology wires on a nissan 240sx before and also made a small (but noticeable) difference. oem ones were also NGK. good stuff.

i doubt BMW uses some godly wires that can't be improved upon. you don't need to upgrade the coils to see the difference.

We definitely had cars like that though hehehehe

Don't have an idea about the wires listed above. But I'm sure that BMW OEM are good for the job ! Unless, youre not running stock ignition coils .

Talking about wires, Cone must have seen this.
Has anyone seen how skinny thin the wires on a 2005 Toyota Land Cruiser GX.R (6cyl) are ??!?!
They look like straws !!! (OEM ofcourse)

DSM's are tricky, and if you dont baby them they tend to go BOOM. My roomate has an eclipse that sitting in his driving for a while because his motor blew up.

Also-yeah, stock ones are just fine.

Eventually I am going to get an MSD ignition and coil. When i do that I am going to get 8-10mm Taylor wires. Had em' on the dinger, and loved em :thumbup:
