Default Spark Plug wires, do they make a difference?

Ok, today I got a chance to put on my new MSD 8.5mm Super Conductor wires and here's the awnser to all of you out there wondering if spark plug wires make any difference performance wise. Yes they do, here's how. My old wires on my 93 EX were from 1994, they were old, worn out, and stiff as a beef stick. Afterwards I noticed slight gain in performance, and better mileage. Of course if your wires are fairly new, replacing them with after market onces would probably do very little. So, there you have it, spark plug wires can make a difference in such a case.

well put. they wont make much (if any) more power than replacing them with stock ones, but hey, why not? esp with that mod list you have planned for this summer (this summer, right?) youre gonna need the extra spark power. and a good place to go now, is an aftermarket ignition.

yea, this spring/summer. Ignition wise, I was gonna get the MSD external blaster coil, and their cap, is that enough? Also, what is the voltage on stock honda coil?
