: WOW- APC Wire install and Iridium plugs!

06-02-2004, 07:28 PM
I installed the APC wires and Iridium plugs that SED suggested in an earlier post. I bought 90-95 Civic wires from Pep Boys and '03 Elantra plugs. I cannot even begin to tell you what a difference it made. I was always dissappointed at the smoothness of the Beta 1, but this makes an increadible difference. It's like a differnet engine! I had to raise the grommets all the way to the top so that the wires would sit on the plugs correctly, and I filed down both the silver engine cover and cut away the black engine cover to clear the APC wires. Both were very easy to do. This is an amazing upgrade!!

How do I add pictures?

I think I figured it out! :)

Hopefully this shows how I cut the engine cover.

I get confused...however the stock plug wires that I took off had a 'Beta 1' stamp on them. It's an '03.

How much does Pep Boys want for them. I know that I sell the Iridiums for about 10 bucks each.
