    Install normal wires... Performance wires won't make much difference.. same thing with plug... not much difference.


    Just do regular tune up and save rest for other stuff.

    After you spend the money.. you just feel the difference.. but actually it's not.. if that was the case than Why wouldn't the auto makers install performance plugs/wires in first place?

    You think they don't care about fuel economy?

    Thick wires don't mean anything... but they can have bad effect... Thick wires mean what? ""More resistance""

    Very good indeed. Why don't you revisit matric and find out (again) that thicker the wire, lesser the resistance?

    @dod
    man the thiker the wire,the lesser resistance.nd y dnt manufacturers put sum nice tyres other then generals?or just paint the side view mirrors or door hadle in body color?they save each nd every penny on everything they car.
    @therockey
    well borther,i wud say,u better ditch the idea.i spent 2k nd put 4 tip plugs in my city idsi on experimental basis,nd guess wat?i felt very little difference.that too,only bcuz of the new plugs nd not the 4 tips themself.nd im not sure if u can put performance wires in idsi.cuz the wires in it r not just like other cars.like u just take of the old wires nd put in new ones.its sumthing different.i wont tell u to play wid the cars' electronics.these things work nicely on a carburetted car but not on efi cars.

    carburetted injection or electric fuel injection system dont imply that the car's gonna be distributorless or not. If city is indeed distributorless then first, theres really no use searching the market for "performance plug wires". In a 4 cylinder distributorless system, a car has usually two ignition coils (each to power another). A very small wire of medium gauge runs from each coil to the other plug and there exists a direct connection to the plug itself present just below that coil. Now, we can extrapolate that a wire of small length but with considerable gague pretty much discourages the need of "performance plug wires" so, its just a waste of money buying these plug wires for a car with distributorless ignition system...

    #therocky
    as u wish borther.but atleast let me explain.(we plugs do make difference but now much)

    broter if u look at the basic working of an engine,its like air fuel mixture is being burned in the engine.the more mixture u put in,more power u get.to increase power,u install air intakes nd open the fuel supply to get more power.in ur case,u dnt hav air intake.nd u cant even put more fuel in as its efi.efi put the exact amount of fuel needed in the engine nd very little of it gets wasted,but in city,as it has 2 plugs per cylinder,not a drop of fuel is ever wasted.it has a complete combustion process.
    performance plugs/wires help when ordinary plugs/wires nd not capable of burning the fuel to the last drop.so they increase the intensity of spark hence igniting all the fuel nd giving u more performance.if theres no extra fuel nd air put in cylinder,u cant increase power by these means.try other things,like air intake nd exhaust systems etc..

    well its my advice but its upto u to decide.i knew all these things but still went for plugs,but the results were not encouraging.
    cheers...!!!

    According to my info, you cannot install after market plug wires in this city cause it doesnt have them in the first place. An expert should be able to better explain the exact technology/terminology behind it.
