It's amazing what one bad spark plug wire can do

When I bought my Tbird, it sometimes felt like it had a miss. Not always but ever so often once it was warmed up. My friend noticed that the wire going to the cylinder second from the rear on the passenger side was shoting ( sprayed water on it in the dark and the show began )

Changed the wires to new ones (just reg parts store replacements, too poor for the Ford Motorsports right now) , and damn, does the car feel so much stronger. It had decent power before, but the new wires made a big difference. I plan on new plugs as well (Autolite Coppers) but the ****ty weather we've been having in the Northeast barely gave me time to do the wires before the rain came.

The car was much more fun to drive today

1996 Tbird 4.6
