If I were looking for wires and I decided to get Magnecor... are these the ones I would get if the car is very close to stock?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.

These wires will work well with a stock vehicle. Ive used magnecore wires on almost all my different cars stock and modified and never had any problems with them. Ive also gotten a general census from other board members that the NGK's and Magnecores are a great combo for a stock or modded C5/Z06

rotors will be great for on the street only :jammin:

be aware of the Hawk pads-I know my Hawk blue's are a MESS to clean off the wheels AND on my paint. The HP+ were not quite as bad, but still left a 'glue-like' residue that just is almost impossible to get off.

Brake mods are fun... don't waste your money on Magnecor's unless you stockers are messed up, you won't get any gains. I have a set that's been in the box for a long time. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

yeah im gettin up there in the mileage so i figured it would be time to do plugs and wires since SCCA season is coming up in the next few weeks. Better safe than sorry, and with the price i paid for the wires i got them about $20 cheaper than the OEM set so i figured what the hell, theyve never let me down before.

Looks like you will be busy this weekend.

Can you post a few more pics, I didn't really get a good enough look at what parts you are using. j/k! :rofl:

Sorry, I could not resist.

Good luck with the install, sounds like fun. :D
