    Spark plug wires Merc 2.5 HP Blue VS Wizard spark plug wires

    Are the Wizard wires better than the OEM ones that come from Mercury High performance ? I have 91 2.5 carb 245HP
    any opinions?

    Thank you
    Joe

    I have both, and they seem to be comparable except in aesthetics. I will leave it to you as far as the looks.

    Chaz, why don’t you just come out and say how you feel the two wires compare? I’d love to hear it.

    Just use the one's from 1991 ... you'll be OK ..

    Better yet, I was at the junkyard a couple days ago, they were about to crush an early 70's van .. I barely had time to reach in the doghouse and grab those dry rotted wires before they became part of a little cube. Whatta waste that wouldda been ...

    Points, analog, digital, twin 40 amp MSD mags ... New for new, there is a wire for every application ... but that wasn't the question.

    Stick your finger in the end of the plug cap and crank it over, each one will most likely give ya the same sensation.....

    Whew.... by the 9th one I was pretty over it and had pissed myself... but I toughed it out and you are correct.... both companys worked well on all 6 cylinders.....

    Now to check the other motor when my teeth quit chattering and I stop smelling colors...

    I hate the smell of purple

    wizy is typically shielded better do you need it ehh dunno.

    though my last set of new merc wires ohms at 1200 with 1100-1300 being spec on that engine and one of the three was 1289. Was a touch disappointed to not see 1100-1150 for fresh ones.
