    Hey guys! I would like to know what types of wires you guys are running with success? I would like to find some large diameter, good quality, pre-cut wires, that can replace the ageing ones I currently run. Right now I have some old 8mm Accel's that I am not sure were ever assembled correctly and feel loose on the plugs and dissy terminals. Let me know what you guys out there have, and like!

    I've got MSD on mine, but I have an MSD HEI. My buddy just put Taylors on his and really likes them. I ordered mine from Summit and they came right away.

    I have Taylors on my vehicles second set I have bought. Good wires. Buy the universal and the $5.00 MSD wire crimping tool that you can use in the vise.

    MSD here. Never had any problems. But like everyone else, I heard Taylors are pretty good to. Delco too.

    MSD 8.5 and Taylor "409" wires. Both really good. The Taylors have a lifetime warranty.

    I used think MSD were about as good as it got. Then we had some RFI problems with the engine we're developing at work and the MSD's didn't make a dent in the problem. Tried some Magnecore wires and the problem disappeared is if by magic!

    MSD wires all the way. 1200* boots so no burnt wires on headers (if you run headers). Also for plugs i like to run the NGK V-power's.

    Pertronix here. No problems. Work well with the Pertonic ignition that fits under the stock distributor cap and replaces the points and condenser on my 72 Blazer. before this mod I was always having to adjust the points and set the dwell, now I've not had to deal with my ignition for over 1 1/2 years.

    Accel gets my vote, good wire looms are the key to making any wire last longer, especially with hedders.

    I use Accel 8mm cut-to-fit wires without complaint.
