In Reply to: Are Autolite Distributor Wires Garbage? posted by Scooter on June 25, 2001 at 23:29:27:

There are at least two types of plug wires, "resistor" (or "suppressor") and "plain." The resistor wires generate less noise for the radio. Many race-type wires ("really good") are plain wires; if you're not running a radio or EFI, it doesn't matter. And it's nifty to know that you're interfering with the cel phone that's distracting the Suburban pilot in the lane next to you.

Generally, there are good and bad varieties of Autolite, Delco, Champion, etc. Usually I ask for Bosch, mostly because the boots seem to stay on the Bosch distributor caps better.


The stereo has a terrible noise coming from it when the car is running that sounds like ignition. The guy I bought it from said it all started when he bought "really good" Autolite ignition wires and put them on.

Has anyone else had this problem with Autolite?

What are other more-stock oriented folks using out there?
