Neuspeed has loow resistance and good fit,
NGK is same in my opinion as stock(fit and quality),MSD has looow resistance but you need to crimp one end of wire yourself ?! WTF also it's got terrible fit(in the box I received, there were 2 wires with same length thus one wire was too short! and some wires did not snap into spark plug), Magnecore had nice fit with lower resistance than stock but more resistance than Neuspeed or MSD.

all after market wires except NGK and maybe
MSD had wires comming strait out from coil,
which makes the wire rub on top of hood.
the stock ones are angled so it does not touch the hood.I figured the manufactures did this so that the same wires fit from 93 to 01 vtec's so they can save money...

of the one's mentioned I'd prefere NGK cus it's the cheapest and fit and performance is stock like. By experience I did not notice ANY performance increase with other lower resistance wires but if you want to spend money get Neuspeed.
If you want to know, I have Magnecore right now, not by choice but by convenience. after some shopping around, you'll find out how much the sales person know about Prelude vtec and how bad the manufactures can **** up on making spark plug wires.

if you're cheap, you'd get Prelude si's wire on sale and cut completely around the top of the rubber boot on the spark plug side , raise the boot about 1/2 inch, puch down the wire until you hear a "click" and use silicone sealant to glue the boot back.
si's wire is just a little too short to go down the head and mate with the spark plug.
good luck...

Huh???


I have heard Magnecores are good, but I have used the Accel 300+ wires and noticed a significant increase in torque and power, smoothly across the rpm range.

I don't think I would make that comment unless I had personally tested every brand made. I am sure there are a lot of good ones out there.

your kidding me. you have noticed a "significant" increase in torque and power.

it is in your head. wires don't do anything noticeable unless your engine is seriously modded.
