Chevy 327 - recommend spark plug wires

Hi...

My 60 Vette has a 327 with the Chevy ram horn exhaust manifolds and a MSD Street Fire HEI distributor... I'm not pleased with the plug wires I purchased from Canadian Tire. They work fine but just don't look right. Some plug wires are a little too long and others are a little too short so getting the wire routing to look ok is a bit of a task...

Can anyone recommend a good set of assembled wires? I don't care much for the universal wires that you must cut to length as I never have any luck with them...

Cheers & many thanks...

Ken

Pro Comp has wires designed for over the valve covers or under the exhaust manifolds. Check into them. I bought a set for over the covers that work very well for my 350. I imagine the under's should work for you. The ones I bought are 10mm HP spiral wound and were very reasonably priced from KMJ performance --------------------- Never mind, you'll have to look somewhere else. KMJ has changed their web site and it sucks now. Their pushing moroso parts on Ebay. Sorry.

Why don't you invest in a good crimper and make them any length you want?
