Plugwire Hell on DIY twin turbo
For some reason, I just seem to have bad luck on my wires. First it was burning them. Recently I settled on these taylor spiropro wires that are cut to fit. I have had them on for maybe 3/4 of a year. I have not driven the car more than a few thousand miles.
Failed emissions with a 1200 ppm HC reading so I checked my wires.
Sure enough if you put a timing light on them you see missing flashes (not even). Also if you rev up and let the rpm drop, big blank spots. I put in some other wires temporarily and they do not do this. The taylors appear to be in good condition.
Could this be my crimping job coming loose?
Is the overall high temps in the engine bay ruining even fancy wires?
Temperature wise-since my headers fip up and they are the hotter than the downpipes, I was thinking of doing a new routing under the header and above the down pipe.
I hate buying wires again and again!
