    I used to be a huge fan of the Taylor Spiro Pro wires. But they went to a 90-day warranty, so I no longer feel they're worth the price. :(

    I got them to agree to replace one old set that I had, but only because I still had the "Lifetime Warranty" form that came in the box. Once those die, I'll probably just go back to the Autolite lifetime wires. They're only around $20 for a set and are available at parts stores everywhere. They don't look as cool as the Taylor wires, but they work just fine. :)

    I was joking about the Accell's. Ive used AC Delco's before. Would again if I had a newer and/or relativelly stock motor.

    Go with MSD 8.5mm Red Super Conductor. Nothing will match the 40-50 Ohm per foot resistance. Ive used 'em for years. Even with 1 plug boot resting against a header pipe they worked flawlessly. Ya the $56.99 price tag is a bit much but they get the job done. I also run MSD HEI distributor and 6AL ignition. Summit an Jegs brand is just another cheap brand with their name on it. The Jegs brand and Accell wires are both $30 so I am thinking both are equally crappy.

    i associate Accel with Champion.. 2 companies living off a name they got 30 yrs ago... its insane the difference in quality between an AC Delco plug and a chumpion...

    MSD's are great and I'm running them on my 78 although I need these for my 97 and for some reason they charge more for vortec I am planning on selling it this summer so really don't want to dump a bunch of money on it

    Is there really any difference or is this just another "its newer so we'll charge more" things. I thought Vortec's were still regular distributor with normal wires to plugs. If they are then any wires for SB Chevy should work.
