        Do I need to request a new tune for these if I already have a tune for other upgrades and 8mm wires?

        • Spark plug wires do not require a new tune.

        im replacing my spark plugs as well with these, can i use any plugs ? or do you recommend a specific set.

        Will these wires fit into my stock wire looms for 8mm wires? If not, do you know a good place to get new looms? I've seen a lot on the web, but would prefer a ford product.

        • I had no problems using my 8mm looms. Its a tight fit but its does the job.

            No Warranty

            Purchased and installed this wire set in January of last year. Car ran well last summer and for about a week after being taken out of storage this summer. Car developed a cylinder two misfire and upon inspection noticed a hole in the number two wire boot causing the spark to arc to the valve cover instead of the plug. These appear to be of excellent quality, but it's disappointing that there is absolutely no warranty and that there was a failure in less than 15k miles of use.

            Good choice!

            Easy to install fit great the factory wire dividers did not fit but I figured being 9mm over all definitely recommend.

            My car had a horrible miss at low rpm. I installed these and my car runs better than it ever has. Plus the red color looks great.

            Looks Preforms

            Was having a terrible miss fire under load these wires combined with new ngk plugs and msd ignition freshened up the cars throttle response and is running incredibly smooth. 10/10 would recommend.

            Disappointed

            I installed a set of the Blue Ford Performance wires a couple of years back. A few months ago I had an engine misfire due to a bad wire. I decided to get a new set, red ones this time. Also put in all new plugs. A couple of months later a new misfire started to develop. I replaced one wire with an old one. A week later, another misfire. I replaced another wire with an old one. Not sure if I should buy another set.

            Sturdy, but the "custom" fit isn't quite right.

            This is my second set of Ford wires, and I've encountered the same problem on both: two of the wires are way too long. And it isn't that I'm using them in the wrong position; there aren't any other wires that I could swap them with to achieve a better fit. Strage. They work fine. I think I may have had 8mm wires before, which clipped more securely into the retaining clip at the front of the engine. These are a little too beefy to snap in securely, but no big deal. You'll probably want to do a little zip-tie or Velcro-band work to tidy up the overly-long wires anyway.

            Worked Well, very pleased!!

            These were to go along with the new MSD coil packs I had just purchased with this order and the MSD DIS-4 ignition system I have on my Cobra. I'll have to say with the new Bama X-4 tuner and tunes all of these items have made my 97 come to life. Thanks American Muscle for some great service and top notch products.

            Good stock replacement

            Wires fit great and are marked per cylinder which make for easy installation. These wires are 9mm and do not fit factory seperators so aftermarket seperators are needed for a professional looking installation.

            Almost perfect

            Wires are a bit longer than stock but if you take your time you can still get them to look nice and neat. I found that that stock wire looms technically could handle these 9mm wires but if your looms are like mine they are brittle. I had about a 50 break rate with the original looms so you might want to buy some looms made for 9mm wires. The only problem I had is that one of the wires was defective and was causing misfires. I'm guessing this is not a very common thing. I've notified americanmuscle and I assume they will remedy with a replacement wire.

            Great Upgrade!

            My stock plugs were gunked up and torn apart. These both look great under the hood, and has gotten this snake running great again.

            FORD RACING HIGH PERFORMANCE 9MM SPARK PLUG WIRES - RED (96-98 COBRA)

            97 Cobra with 51k miles. I had been experiencing a miss-fire at mid to high rpm. Replaced the factory FORD RACING HIGH PERFORMANCE 9MM SPARK PLUG WIRES. Wow what a difference, pulls strong to 6800 rpm. Great value, easy install, fast shipping. Thanks American Muscle.

            Great product!

            I have a 1996 mustang cobra and had the stock wires still on the car. I bought these red ones and love them! They don't fit your stock wire looms so you'll have to get bigger ones but these definitely add a sportier look than the stock blue ones in my opinion.

            A good fit for my vehicle

            The wires were just a bit longer than my previous set, but I would rather have them longer than shorter. Overall, considering the engine and how difficult it is to work on in the first place, the wires went on pretty easy.

            Nice

            These wires replaced some old ford blue ones that had been on the car for 5 years..The car fires up ALOT faster, the engine bay looks better, and it also fixed my misfire. Car was running bad..hesitating, missing, bogging down. This cured it.
