    UK petrol prices set to hit £1.20 per litre

    I agree , the fuel hike is not needed at this time in our economy , people are still struggling after the rescession which i might add might be over for some but is still current for others, and it will still go up more in the budget robbing us blind me thinks :mad:

    ignition leads

    Also just to add if you are running stock engine with stock coil you should only need normal size leads , as the larger diamiter leads will give you no benefit you will see or know of , most people upgrade to 8mm and above if they have upgraded their ignition setup ie larger high capacity coils...

    ignition leads
