Twin Power

Reinforced Kevlar core ignition wire sets

“These new Twin Power ignition wires won’t cure cancer, but they will deliver good, reliable spark at a fair price,” says James Simonelli, Brand Manager for Twin Power.

The ignition leads are 8.65mm thick with 500 ohm/foot of resistance. The Kevlar core has been reinforced with fiberglass strands for additional strength, then covered with a layer of EPDM - ethylene propylene diene monomer M-class synthetic rubber - a versatile and tolerant, resistant elastomer that makes it ideal for road-going applications; the M refers to its classification in ASTM standard D-1418.
Twin Power then adds a layer of braided tape for flexibility, with Mag wire to ensure conductivity and eliminate RFI (radio frequency interference) and noise; finally, they have an outer jacket of high-quality silicone that also provides heat resistance and extends the durability of the wire set.
The ignition wires feature a silicone distributor and spark plug boots to help dissipate the heat; the terminals are stainless steel to reduce potential corrosion. Each ignition lead is built with SAE J2031 class E rated cable for heat protection of 450º F.
Each set includes a packet of dielectric grease to prevent arcing, keep moisture out and prevent corrosion; two miniature cable ties are included. They are available as direct fit sets for most popular models and universal sets for custom applications.
