curious if anyone has any feedback on these wires? I bought them today cause my truck has stock wires on it at 108,000 miles so i figured it was time to change. They seemed ok putting them on but didn't feel like the connector that attatches to the coil pack was as sturdy as the OE wires. Anyways they ahve a lifetime warranty and they should work ok. Curious to hear of anyones opinion on these?

As long as the coil end has the stock style connector you'll be ok. Some wires only have one side of the clip and they suck. If the Bosch have only the one clip take them back and exchange or refund.

ya they are exactly the same connectors. Both had 2 clips. the bosch's were a little longer than the OE but other than that it was fine. I keep hearing bad things from some people about bosch but i have bosch wires and plugs and my truck runs great so i don't know whats up.

The wires are probably fine I prefer to use stock plugs tho if you havent done any mods motorcraft plugs are the best for your engine. Keeping the burn at the proper heat range is important for overall engine health and durability.

I run the Bosch wires and spark plugs in my little 2.3L. I have had no problems with using them. The OEM motorcraft plugs were chewed up at 75k miles. The Bosch plats seem to be holding up very well with little to no wear after 50k miles on them.

are you running the bosch plugs with the two prongs? thats what i'm running.....bosch +2's i think is what they are. Its finally nice to hear someone have some good luck with bosch's, makes me feel better. I have not had any problems either. I finally got around to cleaning my K&N today and it made a world of difference, i can accelerate now!

I had some problems with Bosch wires. Mostly with the ends separating when I take them off. But Motorcraft is the only brand I haven't had that problem with.
