Plug wire suggestions please

Im going to replace my plug wires, I like the style that I have ,runs across the valve covers with straight boots.HEI ignition SBC400 The reason I like these wires is they have a really long boot that protects them from the headers.
They don't have a brand name on them.Any suggestions to something similar would be greatly appreciated and as always Thank you

Just start looking up applications untill you find something that works.
I'd be much more worried about that Fuel Filter & Line/Hose.
Copper = bad, work/vibration hardens, cracks.
Plastic = bad, melts, Fire, Fire, Fire, Fire.
Rubber hose too long = bad.
Get a metal Filter, Steel line, use shortest rubber Hose possible.

Taylor wires get good reviews. Regarding the copper tubing -- I have to agree, and no one mentioned it's affinity for heat. That coil is a heat exchanger. Do you have trouble with poor performance when the engine heats up?
