What brand of cap rotor and wires do you use?
Just what the title says wondering what others have used and their effects.

Pretty much the cheaper parts due to them needing to be changed in the colder climates yearly or so thanks to Gms poor deisgn and the corrosion after a year of use.Mike

Yes it is a poor design, and those of us who live up here in the cold/wet environment go thru them. They need to be checked every spring. and dont be surprised if they are that corroded. that is why most GM guys agree that once a year change, though you may get more time.

The Firepower kit will take care of it? Any performance gain or just reliability.

GM 5.3 liter engines do not have a cap and rotor. They have 8 coils and 8 short plug wires.
