          the only other brand I would get is MSD, but price is about the same, so go NGK!

            the last place that replaced my plugs replaced them with NGK-R platinum plugs and they seem to work fine when the car is running.

              my stock oem wires were only $43 u.s. a lot cheaper than other brands.

              not that much.

                Did you check the resistance in the wires?? Do that to make sure they are the problem.

                Resistance shouldn't exceed 25,000 ohms

                  stock wires are Sumitomo, not NGK.

                    My bad.

                    NGK's are better IMHO

                      NGK's are only better in V-tak
                      White teg had denso's... never failed (although the iginition did)

                        This is true. Both are good plugs. There are tests out there that say ngk's are better, then there are test that say ngk's are no better, or maybe even not as good as the sumitomo's.... I say its a wash. Buy whichever you prefer, I don't see how either could be that much better than the other.

                            After all this discussion, I'm considering getting some 4 gauge wire and making my own

                              when we got MSD wires for our FSAE car, they came as uncut lengths of wire and seperate terminals.

                                  wasnt there a test done on a gsr a while back where an old set of oem wires outperformed the aftermarkt ones in the comparison?

                                        I suppose if you just don't like the color of the oem ones (I still have my original wires as well, theyre lasting just fine) you could dye them, but I doubt anyone has a problem with the power they deliver.

                                          you can also use the oem wires from a 92-95 vigor, and all 92 and below integras. even the dealership computer has that service note. and they are red.

                                              I just switched to NGK Blues for my GS-R. The previous owner had Bosch wires, and there was no noticeable difference between the two. But I got a good deal on the Blues on HT.com. Go with NGK.
