    Anyone tried the after market wires on ebay?

    Re: plug wires

    Our spark plug caps are removable, but I think the spark plug wire is soldered to the coil wire before the coil is potted in epoxy. So I dont' think our wires are even replaceable?

    n2wheelies did a nice job replacing coils and wires with Nology.

      I am running sv 1k coils and wires and love them. Much better then stock.

        I have TLR coils and SV coils, haven't mounted either yet as I'm polishing the TLR engine mounts. Did you mount the SV coils on a TLR? Did you have to make special brackets? Were the high-voltage wires the right length? Did you use the SV plug boots?

          You can 'unscrew' the plug lead from the standard TL coil.

          Les (TLDV8) has taken pictures of the lead removed and overlayed dimensions for replacement wires.

          Here we go, found one:

            Cool, didn't know that.

              All I did was buy some used sv coils from eBay and install them how they showed up. I could only use 1 bolt to hold them on, as they are smaller then the TL coils. But so far they have about 3k miles on them and have yet to move. The reason i like them is that with my TL coils, even after I trimmed the leads, I kept fouling plugs. Even after switching to iridiums. Now with the sv coils and iridiums I have yet to foul plugs.

              Even when I switched to the cbr injectors which seem to be MUCH larger then the TL injectors I didn't foul the plugs on the way to the dyno. When I got there, I found out with the new injectors I was no leaner the 10 to 1 afr anywhere in the map......so they have done pretty well for me so far.

                CBR injectors? I hadn't heard about that, but I want to know more. I have very high-compression pistons and vee two cams, shortened and bored TLR throttle bodies. But stock displacement. Haven't installed it yet, much less fired it up. But I'm very interested in an injector upgrade and possibly an adjustable fuel pressure regulator before I attempt re-programming the ECU (I already dug out the potting epoxy and soldered the header onto the printed circuit board).

                  There is a thread on the cbr injectors, but it is on the zone. It was started by tlr brendan. The cbr injectors I bought, per his write up, were the same size as stock. Just 12 hole instead of 4, and ran slightly more cc's. But I was able to order new tlr orings and use them. The connectors are even the same.

                    So you can change the wires. Now there is another question. Could you use some auto racing build your own wires and make your own. I have some excel race build wires leftover. They are 7.5 or 8mm. They held up very well with my 70000volt thunder bolt coil I had in last hot rod. It would melt everything else.

                      Can you install and use GSX-R600/750/1000, "in the head", type coils and wire them up to work?

                        Depends on the impedance of the coils and whether the high-voltage stalk reach is right.

                          (Cap mounted coils) Been tried, too tall.
