Plug and wire question

I see a bunch of adds for high performance plugs and wire sets. One that comes to mind with plugs are the ones with 3 contacts at the electrode. Is there really any performance gain with these parts or for that matter a hotter coil over a stock GM HEI? Thanks in advance for the advice and comments.

Re: Plug and wire question

Performance wires can have an advantage. Plugs no. HEI stock coil has all the spark power you will ever need.
