what is recommended for a 1g talon tsi? Is there a special type of plugs and wires to get? I also heard that the gap in the manual was wrong, what is the right gap?

The preferred plug wire seem to be the Magnecor. Also NGK plugs work well with these. A colder plug retains less heat between combustion cysles.

NGK BPR7ES - these are one heat range cooler than stock.
Magnecor wires seem to be the preference, although I am running Accel 300+ ThunderSports. I like them so far. They only cost me $50.00 or so at PerpBoys. You can get them in red, blue, or yellow.
I've heard that you should gap plugs at .029, I run mine at .030-.031 with no problems.

I've been running mine at .028, my idle and timing seemed a little rough at .030. And yes, Magnacores 8.5mm are one of the wires you can buy. Exspensive but well worth it

I think you can get away with either Magnecor or stock wires -- both are about the same price within $5 (gotta shop around!) I've heard good things about both, but what I thought was interesting were the specs on cars I've seen that produce in excess of 400 hp using stock wires -- apparently they're that good. Also, my local dealer tech swears by them (and claims that he's not just rooting for OEM products just because he works there).

I've had no problems w/ NGK wires, they run about $50.00 I think.
As for plugs go with the NGK's as well, as posted above. If your car is bone stock you probably shouldn't go with the colder range plugs though.

They aren't as good performance wise as copper plugs. Stay away from iridium and platinum, those are just made to last a long time. The 4g63's don't care for those plugs at all.

NGK for wires and plugs. I would never touch anything else. Magnacore are good also but can be pricey. I have had a set of accells start to cause my spark to break up in about 4 months after buying them.

Ive also had a set of MSD wires go bad in about 2 months or they where bad from the beginning. Just swapping to ngks wires fixed the issue and they have been in the car for a year. Maybe I had bad luck or something.

I run 30psi dropping to 24 bye redline with a .028 gap with zero break up.

Ive been through about 4 sets of wires. 2 sets of magnacores, Something else and now ngk. The NGK have held up. the others lasted about a year and started arching.

I think there was a write up about this a week or so ago. Someone went through and compared the OHM ranges of popular wire sets. It was pretty helpful, maybe someone can look it up for you.

Spam Assault. Remove that junk. Otherwise, NGK is a solid brand, not slighting any other brands, like magnacore or the like, but I've run NGK, plugs and wires, in all of my cars, even my 76 Skylark (RIP). <--- not plug related :rolleyes:

Well, Ok then! :D

For future reference, I only run NGK (plus and wires) and have never had a single problem with them. Stick with the 6's if you're on the stock turbo or if you drive like a grandma. 7's are for larger turbos or tunes that require a colder plug.
