NGK Plug wires or OEM plug wires

I'm going to get a set and both the sets (NGK and OE) are the same price. my question is whether the NGK are better then the OE plug wires? Is it an upgrade or just an oem replacement?

i thought the same thing, i just want some clarification as to whether they are OE replacements or an upgrade over stock.

according to NGK's website, the plugs are made to higher then OE manufacturer specs.

UAP sells NGK wires.. they are blue.

I don't know if Honda uses NGK wires (they probably do).

My 2 cents.. if they are the same price.. i would get oem

The blue ones are an upgrade, but no need really for them unless there the same price as the oems, (buy them from the states after shipping customs it comes out the same as if you bought oem from honda)
