Default Ignition Wires

What types of wires do you guys suggest for a 90 1.6L turboed on 5 psi? I got that the plugs have to be colder ones (BKR7E's) but what about the wires? What do you think about the ultra ign wires by racing beat? or the blue NGK's? any other suggestions?

NGK blues from Rosenthal Finishline performance. They're cheap and work great.

I run Botch Profesional Series from Advance Auto Parts. They are high quality, priced around 40 bucks witch is similar to NGK's after shipping, and they have a lifetime warranty. IMO, it's the way to go. However, they are a little to long on my 99, I need to shorten all of them about 3", but that dosn't affect performance any, just appearance.

For the price of magnecor's you could get a COP (Coil-On-Plug) setup and never buy plug wires again. While getting even hotter spark, while running a larger plug gap.
Look in the archives for the COP threads. They have part numbers and how-to writeups that explain it very well.

I have the 8.5 Magnecors. Ran a set for 80K miles on my Greddy set-up without a problem until I broke the clip on number 4.
