Also an auto plug set up does not do well at higher altitudes i.e. 10k-14k. Iím on the fence if I should stay with the fine wires or switch to auto. And thanks for the info on Maggie harness.
Suggest Denso 5003 M22 plugs and G3i harness. Make sure you use red loctite on the end threads and not get any loctite on the shoulder for good contact. I just ordered a replacement fine wire plug for a customer who dropped one which cracked the resistor. $160 for one fine wire plug with tax and shipping. Crazy!
