3.2 plug and wire suggestions

So I completed my annual oil change the other day and while checking my final fill level, I saw a couple rogue sparks coming off a plug wire!

With so many options offered from our host, Iím at a loss at which I should pick. Any help would be appreciated.

Am very pleased with the set from Clewitt Engineering. Make sure you buy new clips/holders for 8mm wires. These are connected to NGK spark plugs.

That's a +1.

Folks like Magnecor as well.

I put an MSD box under my drivers seat and mounted the coil where the CDI box was on the wall. Clewett made an extra long coil wire to accommodate. Not earth shattering in what they did but they were "Oh, easy peasy". Nice touch.

Thanks for the info. Iím thinking that I should do disty cap and rotor along with plugs as I canít find a record of those being done on the car. Any recommendations on those items?

Thanks all

I have had both on my 88. Both were great. I made the mistake of not putting the wire in the right place and was sucked into the fan.

So my Magnecor wires showed up the other day and found a little discrepancy during the install. The coil connection ends on the Beru wires that were installed and the new Magnecor set are very different. Would like some opinions on this. Beru on the left
