You could link to a new thread from this one, get people to notice it. :-) I don't have any problems with my Toyota COP set up, and I've bought those for as low as $15/ea. Cheaper than keeping the stock ones since the first time you buy plug wires you're over the cost of cheap COP....
Why would you WANT an analog signal full of noise? I'd much rather know how much knock there was than how loud it was.
