1- the original ones work fine, but I think any copper -not carbon- leads +resistive plugs would be fine. The Carbon ones tend to get a cable break somewhere which will lead to cable fail in time.


3- Nice cables; sligthly thicker than original so maybe the 1st cylinder sensor might not fit. I'm not sure if they will do a better job then original, but it will look the part.

4- Yes you can reuse the old one; it's actually a small coil that picks up the EM field of the cable when that cable is energised. As long as the housing is not damaged and the sensor can be measured through with a DMM (few Ohms I believe) it can be used again and again and again.
