Those are what I would call wire seperators. What I had in mind is more what cdminter59 pointed out. There are several different styles but all basically the same. They mount using the same bolts that hold down the valve covers.

Thanks, I'll look into that.

I'm going to be buying all new plugs and wires, just stating that so people don't think I'm asking how to route those that are on it.

Plug Wire/Headers help

I'm wondering what kind of plug wires/plug wire boots would be best to run with the type of headers that are on my truck, what would give the most clearance from the headers?

Here are some pics.






Thanks guys.
