    Hey guys....sorry for the question but i'm trying to figure out what size wire gauge i should use for my plugs?......I'm convinced into buying the Taylor spiro-pro wires....what does 8mm-10mm determine?

    The milimeter of the wire determines the outside diameter of the wire (Or how thick the wire is).
    Check out Moroso's wire. They offer 11mm, 8.65mm, and 8mm wire. Taylor offers 7mm and 10.

    Hope this helped.

    oh ok...so would this have an impact on how my 88gt performs? I heard suggestion the taylor's 10mm wire or the 8mm wire.....what's the differences?....just the thickness?....i'm sure it has performance properties as well.....thanks for the response and info though...

    I believe the actual conductor inside is the same size, it's just the jacket that is thicker.
