Has anyone ever taken out their resister in their spark plug wire
I took mine out and replaced it with a piece of fat copper wire and
Put it all back together and wow it made so much difference the throttle
response it gave me was unbelievable. :thumbsup:

Not sure why that would have made a difference.
If I can find a non resistor plug I'll give it a try.

Without resistors in your engine ignition circuit you can experience static on a radio as well as interfere with other sensitive electronic equipment like the CDI. Resistors in plugs, cables, and coil wiring all help eliminate "noise" :thumbsup:

My understanding is that you need both resistors to sufficiently supress the noise. Where is Toyota MDT when you need him? :thumbsup:
