Plug Wire

hey ya'll I have a 93 full size blazer with a 5.7 in it. It needs plugs and wires and i was lookn through summit the othter day and saw they have their own brand of build your own wires. I'd like to go that route and make them all pretty and clean up my engine bay a lil. Also summit has a remote coil for my motor and i was wondering if any one had any thoughts on these. O and with the plug wires should i get solid core or spiral core, this is by no means a hot rod, just my daily driver im messn with. If you need any clarification on this lemi know.

Spiral core and I dont know that Id bother with a remote coil. I doubt you'd notice anything different. What type of ignition system do you have now?

NEVER use solid core on a street car. Race only item. Spiral core is the best thing since sliced bread - the radio suppression of carbon core with the current carrying capacity and toughness of solid core.

If you have the bucks then its no biggie. Like I said you probably wont notice the difference, but at least then you'd be sure your ignition is up to par for future upgrades to the rest of the motor.

iv got some money burning a hole in my pocket right now, maybe i'll just get the plugs & wires and some other dress up parts and leave the coil alone for the time being. I need to start buying patch panels for the c-10 project and get that moveing in the foward direction again.
