Default Looking to purchase a few items. Looking for prices, availability and recommendations

Looking to pick up a couple things, see if I can't get on the road. Love to buy everything right here, thank you!

What plugs should I run? Thinking Magnacores? Just want to do it right and get the best ones. Black available?, just prefer that they're not red. (or yellow )

Need a Walbro 190 (HP I think?) Throwing in the towel on the auxiliary pump. That thing kicked my ***, and I am obtaining oneness as I follow the path of least resistance. 3 peas in a bucket is all I have to say.

edit: Braineak I see walbro on you list, but not your site.

2.5" silicone "hump-hose" coupler, flat black.

If you dudes have any of these for sale let me know on the price. Also, feel free to recommend something else, I'm not set on these choices.

TIA.

Lightningmotorsports seems to have the best price on a 190lph HP pump

Go here:http://shopping.lightningmotorsports..._Kit-p-89.html

and upgrade for $5 to the HP pump in the drop down menu.

Thanks for the heads up. Not too concerned with fast shipping, non DD.

On these: http://shopping.lightningmotorsports...cat=195&page=2I I can't find anything other than red. Uhhhh.

Red: the fastest color around

Why not use the NGK wires? They aren't red or yellow and seem to work well for most people.

Jay, sounds fine to me whatever is the best thing for my setup. Just don't want to have to eventually replace them because I should have bought something better, dig?

I'll check out the NGKs.

My last set of NGK's went 50K, and I replaced them only to find my problem was elsewhere.

No need /\

What do you mean by "Flat Black" ? I have never seen coupler that look like a chalk board. These are a nice black but not ultra bling 1988 Armor All sheen.
Best pic I have of em.

Ordering everything Monday. I'm excited.

Couplers (WOT ) , 190 pump, and Magnacores. Decided I don't give a damn what color they are.


Pump and wires from Lightning. Good prices, thanks for the link.
