Proud supplier of NGK products
February 22, 2014
We have been proud to be an official NGK supplier her at Automotive Warehouse for a very long time. We know a good product when we see it. After hearing your feedback on a daily basis, we know you all agree.
Take a peak at the advantages and construction of the NGK wire sets and see what sets them apart from the competition.
NGK's Spark Plug Wire Sets are built to meet stringent OEM tolerances for a variety of vehicles.
Superior Firing and Fuel Savings
Excellent Noise Suppression
Perfect Fit for Your Car
How they work.
When a spark plug fires, it creates a great deal of radio frequency interference (RFI) and electromagnetic interference (EMI). Uncontrolled, this can show up as static in the radio or other electronic devices, or much more seriously, in electronic ignitions, fuel injection, and engine management systems. This interference with EFI and engine management systems can cause "cross talk" between wiring harnesses resulting in poor running, misfiring and decreased performance. NGK Resistor Spark Plug Wire Sets utilize a construction method known as "variable pitch" wire winding to create resistance to radio frequency interference. The variable pitch winding (loose/tight/loose) provides suppression throughout a very wide range by "scrambling" and breaking up the electrical waves radiated by the firing of the spark plugs.
A ferrite magnetic layer consisting of a mixture of rubber, plastic and powdered ferrite magnetic materials, offers uniform resistance and unsurpassed conductivity. NGK wires have a lower resistance than conventional carbon core wires (8k ohm/meter vs. 16k ohm/meter). This comparison is important to remember when you consider that many manufacturers recommend wires be replaced when the resistance exceeds 20k ohm/meter. This does not leave much margin for wear when the wire may only meet original standards at the very early stages of its life.
