    MSD 8.5 mm cut to fit wires with 90* boots except a straight on #5, Design Engineering sleaves, and Billet Specialties looms. Have run Taylor Spiro-Pro cut to fit in the past and they held up to the heat well.

    I used to like accel wires. Kinda funny because I put a yellow set of accels on a red engine once (from a buddy for $10) and got ribbed for it looking like a McDonalds engine.
    I wouldn't do that to you, though.

    Thanks for all the information guys. I went with Taylor wires and ran them over the top. I need to get some new wire holders. I don't like what the previous owner had put on. I'll get some pics soon. It runs like a dream after the full tune up and fuel filter replacement.

    Holy shit! Very nice!! What do you call the metal pieces that hold your wires along the bottom of your valve covers? Never seen that and I like it.

    Seems like a general concensus from this thread then that headers should have 90° boot ends? Ive always bought premade wires and my engine is stock nothing crazy so I was just going to get some acdelcos. Only thing is with the 90° boots I have my spark plug boot covers dont fit over them. Ive got the factory heat sheilds on there maybe thats enough?

    These are the 2 I was looking at and they have one of the 90°s left at 39.00 for a closeout deal.
