Exhaust Manifolds

I would like to use exhaust manifolds that allow the plug wires to route across the valve covers rather than routing under the manifolds between the pipes and the block. The vehicle is a 1980 GMC Cabellero (same as El Camino)and the engine will be a 350ci. Any ideas on what will fit?
Has anyone used the distributor cap/ plug wire arrangement that outs the no.1 and no.8 wires close to the firewall/bulkhead/dash support? This arrangement with the standard firng order keeps the wires from crossing and it may look better.

There is a modified cap available through most speed shop catalogs. As for exhaust manifolds, 2nd gen Camaros and 68-72 Chevelle manifolds will allow running the plug wires how you want them, however, I don't believe they are workable on that chassis.
