BTW
Does anyone object to using ACCEL plug wires?

8.8mm graphite suppression; silicone spark plug boots; 550 degree double silicone construction; fiberglass braid; carbon/graphite core; magnetic suppression; fiberglass/kevlar core; 500 ohms resistance...
or is that a waste of $ too?


I would recommend wires with a spiral-wound steel conductor, like MSD and Taylor, over the Accels.

On the other hand, I did use a set of ready-made carbon/graphite Bosch wires in my pickup. They cost $30-something at AutoZone and work just fine. However, it doesn't seem like any manufacturer can get all the lengths perfect, even for a stock engine.
