Need Plug Wire Help

I want to replace the plug wires on my SBC with an HEI ignition. I have Billet Specialties wire looms that route the wires down the back of the engine and along the lower edge of the valve covers. The selections on Summit and Jegs web sites are overwhelming. I found a GM Performance wire set that is made for this type of set up, but I can't determine if it has 90 degree boots on both ends. The part number is 12368383. Is anyone else using these types of looms and wires? If so, what type of plug wires are you using and who makes them? I want to use red 8 - 8.5 mm wires

The Taylor red universal set would probably be your best bet since you are going thru looms the extra length is a plus you will have to crimp and install the distributor boots so get the little crimping tool,Summit has those the Taylor boots are short and give you more clearance at the headers,Check my classified ads for a pic of the boots.
