Aight, I picked up a set of ZZP spark plug wires from clubgp. The guy said the were brand new in the packaging.

They arrived today, so I went out an installed them. I opened the box, and they were not brand new..package was open and they were a little bit dirty but nothing bad. I figured the guy had them sitting in the garage shelf or something.

Car was running perfect before with the stock wires. I finished up the wires, and cylinders 5, 2, and 3 and missfiring BAD. Watched it on the aeroforce and literally within 10-15 seconds each cylninder was between 42 and 67 misfires.

Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue with zzp wires. My guess is, this guy installed em, saw the issue and sold them to me like a jackass. I have a test tmrw morning and some homework, so tmrw after classes I'm gonna isntall my stock ones and see if the problem is gone so I can be 100% sure its the zzp wires, but I'm almost positive it is.

I agree. I wouldn't buy anything on ClubGP these days. It seems to get shadier and shadier by the day.

Well, I'm about to go out and confirm it is the wires and not something else, but I messaged the guy last night and he said if I want a refund he will be okay with that, so we'll find out in a few mins.

90% of the people on there are legit, this is the first time I have had a problem. But I usually only buy from people who post ALL the time. Like the people who's name and sig's I have seen hundreds of times and they tend to be more reputable there. I'll update in in a little bit.

EDIT: Well, replaced the wires with my stock wires. Problem is still there. So now, I'm trying to figure out what it could be. Im leaning towards I either screwed up the plugs when removing my wires. (the misfire is in cly 3,5,and 2). Or the coil packs magically went bad when I removed the wires. Doubt its the fuel injectors, but i'm not to sure.

Guy i know from clubgp has an etra coil pack and set of wires I'm gonna borrow to diagnose this. Probably going to just replace the plugs while I'm here too.

EDIT 2: JESUS I AM RETARDED....so i went to a local clubgp members house down here and borrowed a coil pack set, and new wires. I also replaced all my plugs (been running autolite copper cores for like 40 thousand miles so It needed to be done anyways). Anyways after like an hour and a half of screwing around with the system, I had realized my mistake. Apparently I hadn't been paying attention and hooked up the front cylinders wrong. LOL...I ended up having cyl 1 hooked up as 3, 3 hooked up as 5, and 5 hooked up as 1. Bang Head Bang Head

So..zzp wires work great, I trashed one of my stockers taking it off so they worked out to be a good buy for $40 bucks. End of my story. I'm going to go crawl in a hole and die now.
