    Just ordered my wires and am curious as to which spark plug wires you all like. Taylor Spriro- Pro or the MSD Super Conductor? thanks!

    I've had great luck with the Taylor Spiro-Pro's. Never tried the MSD's.

    I think either one is a pretty safe bet. I have excellent luck w/ both!

    I used to sell both brands, and have also run both the MSD and Taylors with success. They are equally good. IMO, it comes down to which ones you like the looks of the most. Whichever brand you run, a quality crimping tool for the terminals, and routing them away from exhaust will ensure that you don't have problems.

    I have run Taylors for years without problems! Never ran MSD, but I do run a complete MSD setup other than wires.

    I've been running MSD 8.5mm for over a year now. No problems at all. Saved a few bucks over the custom set by ordering a 25' roll and the connectors and then crimping them myself.

    Where did you order the stuff from? That sounds like a plan and how much did you pay for it all?

    I've got the Taylor's. They work great. Also, I use Moroso Blue Max's on my ZZ4. I like those alot.
    Got all of them from Summit. <a target="_blank" href=http://www.summitracing.com>www.summitracing.com</a>
