Hi. i took mine out and replaced it w/ some heavy gauge wire i got at the hardware store, cut resistence by a couple ohms. the prob i had was the boot on the coil. it was glued and had to ruin it to get it off. i put the new wire in then ran some heat shrink over the wire and coil to make a new boot. no problems so far. ps. i did this after running down a weak spark issue. after testing every single thing i could i took it apart and bingo, it was the wire.
