Best wires and plugs for a 22re #642392

I'm getting ready to do a tune-up on the 4Runner before I set the timing and I want to put on good wires, Plugs, cap, and rotor. I usually buy off the shelf stuff from Oriellys auto parts but I want good stuff to put on my truck. What brand and type of products are recommended for the 22re? I called Summit about the wires and they had a set of NGK's for around $28 and a set of custom fit Taylor wires for around $26. I am just looking for good results without spending tons of money <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> Any suggestions?

ngk plugs are the best and the oem wires are the best. the oem ones will outlast any wires on the market today. i dont really think the cap matters. id go w/ the cheapo one.

any idea what a set of OEM's run? When you say OEM do you mean dealer wires or Aftermarket OE quality?

we're talking about wires from the dealer b/c i believe toyota is the company who makes them. oem means Orignal Equipment Manfacturer. i think they are around 50 bucks, but i could be wrong.

Get the OEM plug wires. They are SO MUCH BETTER than any of the aftermarket wires, even the expensive ones. They may run as much as $80 (call around to different stealerships), but they will last a LONG TIME.

You can replace $20 parts store wires every six months or you can put OEM wires in once and run them for 100k miles. Your choice.

i've never had a problem with any aftermarket wires, but the OEM ones on my 22RE look fine so i won't bother replacing them yet(i run 8mm taylors on my '79 and couldn't be happier).

i like NGK plugs, if for nothing else that they have a non removable lug for the spark plug wires, saves some aggravation for when the danged things work themselves loose.

as for the cap and rotor, i think they all work fine but the ones with the brass contacts last the longest.

As stated above stock OE wires are best... if listening to AM radio is your primary concern. OE wires conduct electricty about as good as a #2 pencil.

If you want actual spark current reaching your poor little spark plugs use the one with the lowest DC resistance. Take an OHM meter and start measuring before you buy. MSD is actually the lowest resistance wire I have had the honor of measuring but they are expensive. If you want a good wire on a budget go with the Bosch "mag core" or any brand x wire made under the same banner. The Borg-Warner "nascar" series come to mind as a bosch made wire selling for probably $20 with low resistance and a lifetime warranty.

yeah, i use bosch's and they have a lifetime warranty. but after a year the inside ripped out on two of them when checking my plugs and i went to autozone and got a new pair. i think that happened only b/c my truck overheated twice before i replaced my head and head gasket though. no problems since.
