    Default FRPP 9mm Spark Plug Wires

    I bought some FRPP red 9mm wires in 2006 and it was time to replace them. The last time i ordered them, they were $120 a set.
    I didn't feel like paying that.
    So after a little research in FRPP's I found part numbers for the set that works on our cars. And by our cars I mean 92-97 Panthers. Unless the 97's had COPs, I think I'm right.
    Anyways, to the P/N's!!!!

    M-12259-R462 is red
    M-12259-C462 is blue
    M-12259-M462 is black. If you can find them.

    These have the sweet caps that go on the coil packs and 45* boot. They are also number.

    I just put in another set of these and a set of E3 spark plugs and now everything runs excellent. And they work even better with MSD coil packs. (PN 8241)
    And I paid $82.50 with shipping for my set from northparkmotorsports.com

    I'd go with North Park Motorsport. They just sent me some sweet stickers too. And because they didn't have any in stock, they had them drop-shipped from FRPP and they got to my house quicker than if they had sent them!

    MSD P/N 5545 also fit on a Panther.
    I know because they're on my car right now.

    Edit:
    MSD P/N 5545 spark plug wires are shit. They fell apart after 6k.
    That is all.

    I had a set of FRPP 8mm wires on my '86 XR4Ti. Worst $80 I ever spent on the car. I ended up going back to my used Motorcrafts. Car idled poor and I noticed spark cutting in the top end of the rev range. I guess it would depend on where they are made. I have been told FRPP parts are made at several different factories, with quality being better at some than others. Cheap enough to try I guess.

    So the FRPP definitely fit and performed well SVT? Sorry to revive this oldish thread, but it was still in the first page of topics.
