    What are considered to be good plug wires? Where can a GI in Korea purchase a set?

    I really like Taylor wires. I have run them for many years with no problems! You can get them on-line at: http://www.summitracing.com

    They are inexpensive and very good quality! I get the Spiro Pros(i think) they are about $40....

    HTH!

    I run the MSD 8.5 wires. They work good but the Taylor wires seemed to work as well and are a lot cheaper. Always had good luck with Summit when I had to mail order.

    I run the Jacobs 8.5mm with ceramic 90 degree ends. I'm running the hedman headers with the air log and have had troubles with the routing around cylinder 5. Jacobs has a lifetime replacement policy that I've tested 7-10 times. All related to the same cylinder:-| Anyway, call them day one and a new wire arrives in a couple of days. The wires are run less than 100 ohms resistance, allowing a larger gap at the business end. I'm happy....

    MSD wires are the way to go. They cost a little more, but only have about 50 ohms per foot resistance, which means more spark energy to the plug.
