SO i ordered these and they just got in. I open the box and theres, yes, 4 wires. just four wires. But in the directions like the 3rd step it says like "Install the coil wire, the blue cap end to the distributor, the black cap end to the coil." UM it didnt come with an extra coil wire, so do I use just the OEM??

I would check your invoice to see the product number, then check the product number to verify its contents. Also, there is a piece of paper that comes with it that specifies the contents of the box. I've never seen a set of plug wires, especially NGK wires, that didn't come with a coil wire...it wouldn't really be that good of a tune-up without a coil wire, IMO

Absolutely, a coil wire is just as important, if not more important, than the plug wires themselves, i've never seen a set of plug wires that came without a coil wire, but weird things have happened...

Y would the fact that it is a na or turbo model have ANYTHING to do with the wires that initiate a spark? So are they saying that na model cars do not have coils? That is close to the most rediculous thing i've ever heard. I would return the set you have, and purchase them from a different place, obviously the place u r dealing with does not deserve your business.

yes, it does matter if it's an internal or external coil. an internal coil doesn't require a wire because it's built into the distributor.

MKII's use external coils. there should be a coil wire in any spark plug wire set.
