    Msd coil pack capable? I was wondering if this set works with the 96 GT MSD coil pack? The blue wires would look awesome with the red coil pack.

    • Yes they will. The MSD coil packs are for any 96-98 4.6L. I'm running these wires with the MSD coils and yes. They do look awesome.

      Seem to work great

      Look way nicer than stock. Don't fit in the factory separators though.

      The wires are constructed well --- nice color pop for under the hood. The fit was another issue- six of the 8 wires are too long and burnt up a loom pack making it a tight job so nothing would rub against the silicone covering of the wires. Needless to say of the time required to loom these wires correctly which brought the job from an hour to 3 hour job. Ford should use their motorcraft wiring lengths on their racing wires and they would be less of a hassle on install. Other than this they look good and perform well. Have your wiring loom pack ready if you plan to purchase these wires to save from pulling your hair out putting them in tightly in the engine compartment..

      Waste of money!

      Lasted less than 100 miles before developing a short and didn't fit on the my screaming demon coils I had to put my old oem wires back on to get the car back running properly oh yeah and they don't have a warranty so if you don't drive your car that much like me several months will go by before they short out and you will not be able to return them.

      Smooth idle and low rpm acceleration.

      I had a low rpm miss on one of the cylinders. Replacing the plug wires took care of the issue! The replaced plug wires were only a year old but 8mm instead of 9mm. It took two hours but that is because I was intent on having them look cleanly routed. Lot's adjustments.

      Did not fit with screamin deamon coils

      Do not buy if you plan on combining with screamin demon coils! They did not fit whatsever. In addition when I got the part, in the original ford performance packaging, it stated on the box that the part was for 2valve I have a 4v. I contacted support for american muscle sent a pic of the box ...they cant explain it. American Muscle dont reccomend a part that isnt compatible!

      Buy These!!! Don't buy 8mm OEM!

      I made a mistake and bought the OEM 8mm wires from a local parts store. What a mistake. They are mass produced junk that fit multiple cars, not just Mustangs and they arc'd once installed. I was getting fluctuating idle and backfiring. I questioned if I had made a mistake but I checked and I didn't. They were just junk. These Ford High Performance 9mm plug wires are just what I needed to pep up the cars original 20 year old wires. Response time is better and it just feels more immediate when I step on the gas. Took no time to put them in if you take off the strut tower brace and cold air intake. Do 1 plug at a time and take pictures of the before wire routing and after to make sure you don't miss a step. Please go this route. It will save you time and money if you do it right the first time.

      Fixed A Miss Fire

      I had a miss fire, I had a hard time finding a set of wires for my 96 Cobra, AM actually had a better price than Advance or Auto Zone, and they didn't have them in stock so I would of had to order them anyways. I like the blue look and the ford racing logo. Mine came in a Genuine Ford Racing Box. Drivers side was easy to install. Passenger side was tricky. next time I will remove the brace. Had a hard time re-installing the air filter housing and hose with the strut brace installed, took some elbow grease. All in All, I am happy, Thanks AM.

      Perfect

      These 9mm wires worked great. They were very clean, with no defects in them. You can tell right away that they're a quality part. Some other people have said they were a bit long, but there's plenty of space under the plastic cover on the spark plug end to make them a perfect fit. Install was easy, took about an hour with new plugs. Be sure to have clean hands when you put on the new wires and you'll save 20 minutes cleaning them lol.

      Just what is needed

      Great spark plug wires. Only issue is that they are to long by about an inch or two.

      Not Worth It

      I was looking for a good set of wires and I bought these. Everything is great about them except for the terminals that hook up to the coils. The plastic is not strong enough to keep the terminal plugged in the coil and just pops out and does not sit well. Caused me all sorts of misfires the car was running terrible. If I pay top dollar I expect top quality. I regret getting them. Ended up having to zip tie them to the coils.

      Cured An On Throttle Misfire

      Bought these to replace the OEM wires that were original to the car, and they made a great difference. There was originally a stutter when you punched it in all gears, and that has gone away completely. This also gave a much smoother idle over the original equipment, and they're a great price for something that's a Ford product. No issues with fitment on the factory coils, but the wire holders were a little tedious to force back together. That's a given though, seeing as these are thicker than factory. Definitely something to do to an older/higher mileage car.

      Does what they are supposed to....

      Ford Racing wire (9mm wire wound) are produced in the USA (Paragould, Arkansas to be exact) but, the wire harness (cut to length, boots installed, etc...) is assembled in Mexico. During the wire manufacture, my set was scratched and has a white line in the blue silicone jacket on two of the wires that runs the full length. They are cut a little longer than factory so the routing takes a little extra time and the factory wire separators don't work since these are a slightly larger diameter. The boots did fit well and these spark plug wires cured the miss that was occurring due to the worn out factory set. They will get the job done.
