Ignition Tune Up

My pony just hit 100k so looking to do wires/plugs. Looking for recommendations on combos for performance improvement. I am leaning towards msd wires but open to any suggestions!

Also, will aftermarket wires work with stock coils? For instance if I get msd wires will I need msd coils?

Thanks

+1 to this, would like some more info. Plan on doing my tune up soon even though I just hit 98k. Close enough.

You can certainly use aftermarket spark plug wires with your stock ignition coil. There's no harm in that! I highly suggest MSD or Performance Distributors spark plug wires and NGK spark plugs. They're a nice combo for a solid tune up.

With 100k miles on the clock. I suggest replacing the fuel filter as well. Yours is most likely well past due replacement and can cause a fuel pressure drop and lack of engine performance.

Hope this info helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!

Shane

I would check radiator fluid and change brake fluid.

Perfect, I was leaning towards NGK plugs and MSD wires. Thanks Shane.
