Default ignition wires

when ignition cables go bad on a boosted car does it make a dramatic difference i was all motor last week and they only acted up at higher rpms now that im boosted it stutters for a while and then smooths out

im running turbo with no management(until i get a day off) i drive it easy so it doesnt boost

I'd recomend getting the fuel management straightened out as soon as you can. But yeah, when plug wires go bad on either N/A or F.I., you'll notice a difference. While your at it change the plugs too. make sure you re- gap them for the new turbo setup. Also, what octane gas are you using and how old is it? Could be a bad fuel filter.

i noticed a slight difference when i instaled a msd 6a box and a big difference with the turbo

i took it on the highway to learn how the turbo works at different speeds and it runs smoother with slight stuttering
