NGK or Magnecor Spark Plug Wires

Ok I know that Magnecor has the best rep for spark plug wires. But my question is how do NGK hold up? I mean they have the best spark plugs for our cars why not spark plug wire's. Or are they?

I will take NGKs over FAGnecores anyday. I had two sets of FAGnecore wires fail on my car and some friends had the same experience. Switched to NGKs and never had a problem. 8mm vs. 7mm doesn't make a difference either.
I agree with the above. I have tried two sets of Magnecores and had problems within a year. I am now on a set of NGKs that is almost 4 years old. I am sure my car puts a demand on the ignition system as well.
NGKs just based on my personal experience.. through 2 diff. DSMs..
I would take the NGKs.

Im using Accel 8mm wires right now though

ya, since when have magnacores had the "best rep"?

and i have never heard a single person complain about the NGK blues...

ya wanna guess what i just ordered last week.... look up. see blue. ;)
I used to have a set of MagneWhores on my GSX that crapped out. I replaced them with the NGK's and have not had a problem since.
For sparkplugwires I can vouch for Accel ad NGK. I have Accel's on the 2g(over 2 yrs.) and NGK's on the 1g(1plus yrs.). No problems whatsoever on either. :D
NGKs are great. They will do their job flawlessly.

MSD makes a good plug wire for SBCs. I haven't heard anyone talk about them on DSMs though.
Well guys thanks for the input now I knew I should have gotten NGK. well looks like am gonna order the NGK wires soon. thanks.

I have had Magnacores and MSDs on my DSM. I didn't have problems with either.

Ditto.....
Accel wires here - same set for the past 4 years. No problems. I have another set on my other Talon that have been on it for even longer. No issues.

Thinking about it...that's the only set of wires that has been on any car I have called my own. I have yet to replace or warranty a set.
I have Magnecor wires and have not had any issue with them either.
I have a set of crapnacores you can buy for $2. Just so you know, 2 of them were arcing at the coil. I would never buy them again. They were great while they lasted I guess. Get a COP ignition system and never worry about plugwires again.
I've always used NGK wires and plugs, never had a problem, 'nuff said.
Magnecors sucked, lasted less than 1 year.

NGK's, one set each for two daily driven turbo awd dsms for 3+ years. Still going strong and they've seen 30 psi of boost.

I'd never recommend or buy magnecor wires.
I had a set of magnecores on my laser and no. 4 kept poping off the coilpack, I bought NGK's and no problems at all and if there is I know NGK's have a lifetime warranty, I'm not sure about Magnecores.
Magnecore doesn't know what the word "warranty" means. They don't stand behind shit which is why they send you a disclaimer with the wires.
no one said it yet, but a lot of us know that NGK also makes the stock OEM wires that come on our cars - at least my 2g GS-T
