  HT leads?? You mean spark plug wires! Blue Ignitors seem to work well,
that is what I and many on the list have used. The wires you are talking
about are the Nology wires. Everything I have read or heard seems to
indicate that they perform extremely well especially in high boost/high
compression situations; conditions in which creating an arc is more
difficult. However, their benefit in a stock engine is questionable. Guys
running real high boost may see a benefit. However, it has yet to be seen
how they work with the Audi turbo ignition system and Bosch
tri-electrodes. Also, they will change ignition timing slightly.
