i just did new cap, rotor and plugs(autolite) and when i was pulling the wires off the plug the little metal piece that connects the two stayed on the plug instead of the wires (that happened on 2 of them) so i shoved them back on the wire ends with pliers but now after it's all said and done my truck idles pretty rough.. so im going to buy new wires and i was wondering if MSD wires are worth the extra money or if i should just go for some autolite wires or something along those lines?

Yeah, definately get new plug wires...that's a given when doing a tune-up like that. MSD wires are pretty pricey, but they are hi-po wires that cut down resistance, which translates into a hotter spark, and more power. Get them if your a power fiend like me, if not, then get some Autolites. They work just as well.

well i talked to the guy at lordco and he said that MSD isn't going to do too much unless you upgrade your ignition system and stuff... which i've heard from a couple people now.. so i went with the bosch wires instead :)

The major advantage you get with the MSD wires aside from the ultra low resistance and larger size (8.5mm.. Bosch is 7mm) is the warranty. They guarantee them against pull-offs for 5 years. I have the Bosch wires now, and I'm not real thrilled. They don't perform any better than the Autolites they replaced, which cost half as much.
