    What are some good spark plug wires for an older 350 with TBI? I need to get some before this weekend. I usually use the ACCEL 8.8mm but the last 2 sets I've had one of the wires have broken and arc'd on both sets. So, debating on some other brand? Any good advice on what you've used? Thanks, /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    i have bought msd 8.5 mm wires on my 80k5 and i put a set of d.u.i. live wires on my 91-the guy said it would cut down on electrical (interferience)? but they were like $90 bucks-both works great-the live wires have a mesh cover the length of the wire

    I have been real happy with Taylor Spiro-Pro. Had one fall against a ceramic coated header tube, and it didn't burn up. They are just 8mm, don't know if you're stuck on 8.8mm.

    Taylor spiro pro are good wires. I use em on my K5 and Mustang
    1/2 the price as MSD.
    I see no reason to run bigger wires than 8mm on stock ign.
    Stay away from Accel. IMHO they are junk. I have had nothing but problems with accel wires.

    What does a set of Taylor wires usually go for now a days? I used to run them on my mud truck, but that was years ago. Where can you find them, I have looked for them locally here, and haven't had any luck finding them.

    Yep. I have had my 8.5mm MSD's for abour 4-5 years (not a DD though) and they are still in great shape. Quality costs money, bottom line. But were talking under $100 so its not that bad.

    I personally run MSD 8.5 Super Conductor wires. I love them. They are great wires. I have also heard good things about Taylor and Live Wires. Accels suck from what I have seen and heard.
