The plugs are labeled with both Mazda and NGK logos. The wire set are labeled just Mazda, I believe.

I'm currently running MSD helicore wires and I love them. I think the next time I change them I'm gonna go for the Accell hi tmep wires. The boots withstand 1500f ambient temps and close with the wire. Sounds like the perfect thing for such a hot engine bay.

I went to the dealer and got the stock Mazda. Yes they are labeled NGK and they cost 25.99 plus tax. The come in a cool blue. I liked how it looked.

I have the Magnecores 8.5mm they supposedly the best wire on the market (yes even claimed to be better than MSD).

I love them and they go well with my NGK Iriduim IX spark plugs.

Yes, 'CLAIMED" would be the keyword here. I checked and checked all the stats beofre getting performance wires and magnecore was nothing compared to the MSD(no offense), but it all depends on what you want. I personally have the MSD and would give it my higest recomendation.

Acell 8.8mm, they're apx. $80 for the set but remember you get what you pay for. Personally the acell 8.8mm plug wires are way better than the NGK's and the higher price of the Acell's says it all.
I mean think about it...do you really think the $25 NGK's are going to be high performance..I don't think so they're a great upgrade wire for an all stock MX-6, but how many of us are looking for an upgrad plug wires for an all stock MX-6. IMHO go with the Acell 8.8mm or better yet go with the acell 8.8mm 300+ race wire.

You're misunderstanding. The NGK's are original equipment replacements. They are high quality wires. If they were not high quality, Mazda would not have chosen them for OE use. These wires have been shown to last 10+ years. The accell's may be "high performance", but their durability may be questionable.

Ok but what im saying is most of us are not looking for durability but rather performance, and to tell you the truth Plug wires that are $80+ a set and are 8.8mm Thick have got to be more durable than some $25 4-4.5mm think NGK's, im not saying they're not a good wire but you get what you pay for. I had a set of NGK's before and they fell apart on me. They would kinda melt to the plug then when I would try to remove them the wire would pull right out of the metal part then right out of the boot, leaving the wire in my hand with the boot on the plug.
I mean really how can a plug wire thats thiner be "more" durable than a plug wire thats 50% thicker?

This is right off the website, (I wish I still had the box so I could just type out what it said on the box).

"8.8mm black silicone jacket with aramid core and fiberglass braiding. Terminal ends are high-conductivity brass with silicone boots. Eliminates electrical leakage; provides excellent performance in high-temperature applications"

If I find my box I'll give some detail stuff on what Acell's 8.8mm plug wires have that make them so great. But what I posted above is enough to show that they are far more durable and higher performance than NGK's.
