All interesting observations. As I try to get my 200 settled with some
chips etc. I am currently getting an overboost code and engine cut out.
(hence my other post) Just trying to decide if its fuel or ignition. This
car only has 106K but has not liked to start in the seriously wet conditons
for almost 18 months, when it does start it takes about 15 minutes for
"normal" running conditions. This is usually an ignition problem tell. Did
cap/rotor, pulled the wires and noticed all cap plugs had insulater material
that was seriously degrading/breaking and a few green connectors. Wire
covering looked fine. To my dismay I also had a "wet" #1 plug hole only a
few thousand miles after a valve cover gasket. At any rate dielectric
greased the cap plugs and figured its is time for some wires even though
others have lasted twice as long. Had an NOS CQ set from my days as a
Pulled the longest connector and noticed the diff length, (left me short for
connecting) and the diff Beru/Bosch PN. than the currently installed equip.
So looking for cheapest source to stay in Bernies good graces!

Further, inasmuch as there is lots of
free space for extra length behind the engine, go for the cheaper and longer
version. Bosch, nothing fancy.
Wires bad? I'm still running the originals at 200+ and 160K. But I never
f**k with them. DFI if IAB!
