Arrow Spark plug wires

Im not sure if this is the right area for this thread but its the only one that made sense since i have questions about wiring. I would like to get a coil pack for my truck(screamin demon or some other company) and wanted to know about better plug wires. What makes the wire deliver electricity? Ive seen OHM ratings on plug wires and havent figured out if more or less OHM resistance per foot is better for getting more electricity to the coil pack. Can anyone help with this? Appreciate it

Honestly there is no performance plug wire for our trucks

The 8mm factory wire is just as good as the ones out there that claim are better.

I searched before for something better. Never found it and I was told to stop looking they are not any better.

Scremin Demon coil pack is a very good upgrade. I have one and I like It.

Ive read about universal plug wires that deliver better electricity to the spark plugs. Are you completely sure theres no such thing as better wires for Rangers? So are you running the stock wires with your coil pack? how much better gas mileage do you get and do you notice any power increase?

I use the motorcraft OE replacement plugs and wires.

Unfortunately I can say how much better MPG and power I gained with the screamin demon coil pack. I added it along with other things at the same time. Along with the tuner.

That tuner sounds like its really good. What kinds deal did you get on it or is it hard to find a good price for it?

Did not get a good deal on it at all. They were all the same price over the internet. I got it for the same price on the net here locally just no shipping.

Plus the place is local so if I add something they can adjust the tunes. You can adjust them your self but you gotta know what your doing.
