Ignition Wires

Does anyone have any preference for ignition Wire Brands on the CSVT?

How about a particular brand for an Ignition Coil?

I am getting a very slight bit of hesitation between shifts, just enough to be annoying and someone here on the CEG has mentioned ignition wires could be the cause.

To me, It felt more like a fuel issue but I guess that I need to start somewhere and wires seems to be a fairly easy/cheap starting point.

I replaced the wires around 3-4K miles ago.
Replaced Plugs very recently.
Cleaned the UIM/LIM through the vacuum lines.

Any more ideas?

Try cleaning the MAF and IAT sensors. You can buy cleaning spray for sensors and electronics.
Worked well for me.

MAf sensor, yes. IAT sensor, don't bother. Dirty won't affect it.

Brake cleaning fluid works great and it's cheap.

I used AutoLite Professionals in my 2.5. Been in there at lest four years now.
