Spark Plug Wires

So... who want's to help me out today?!

Ok... here's what I'm thinking... my Fiero owning friend is talking about putting new spark plugs and such in his car... and I was thinking... hmm... I want some more color under the hood lol.

So I was thinking about upgrading my spark plug wires. First off, what gain will I get from them, and second off, what brands do you all prefer and what size. Thanks!

I like my MSD wires and they are red and like Brent said unless your wires were crappy there will be no gain Only ricers gain about 20 -30 HP from a wire change

8mm wires should be fine I think that is what I had on my V6er, don't have any spark plug wires on my GT, can't even see the plugs, lol.
