I put some on about a month ago and noticed no performance gain. I actually read on ********* that they take away about 1HP. I bought them to get rid of all of those ugly wires runing acoss the intake and because they look bada$$. They did make my truck idle smoother hough but with 57000 on the original plug wires, just the plug wires being new may have been the cause. I would say get them bc theyre easier to install (done both btw) and they look awesome. The butt dyno showed no loss in power at all.....

I'd get them if I had an 05 and under hemi....the wires make the ignition kind of like the 06+ hemi's and 6.1's.

ive got the shorty wires. they dont give you better performance or anything, but they cleared up all the clutter the old wires caused, and i got em in red to match my truck!

"performance" plug wires only make a difference in high revving hp conditions. Then, you would need a coil pack of equal or greater performance for the wires to even make any difference.

They may look good and probably last a little longer and cost twice as much, but will do nothing for gains.
