The Magnecores are very good wires. It's the spark plug boots that suck----really a piece of crap. Pricey wires with a cheap-a$$ boot. Ask me how I really feel!
Clewett builds a nice wire with good boots at an attractive price.

The braids were added back then when the engineers at Porsche were trying to fix the back-fire issue with the CIS systems. They thought there was some spark crossfire issues across the high tension leads. Little did they know that the problem was in the Bosch system!
