Default Are bigger SparkPlug Wires better

they have less resistance, so a little more power.

they dont give you power. they allow a more stronger signal but watch out some large wires could actually have more resistance in them

you sound like tony the tiger [theyrrre grrreat]

ive heard stories that the FRPP arnt as good as some others
you could rock some Taylor's they seem to be a nice set or get the ones
that you cut to length that way you can run them how ever you want
