sbc shorty header plugs

Need advice on shortie plugs, dont really want to get the Accell plugs. Whats every body running on their SBC's with HEI?

The shorter the better. #7 plug wire is resting on header tube and 1,2 and 8 are to damn close.

I have the bosch +4 platinum plugs and moroso 11mm plug wires, and none of mine are touching. They are a little close to the headers, but none of them have melted as long as they aren't touching.

Part No. for spark plugs will vary depending on application (i.e. type of head - alum or iron?, compression ratio, n/a or forced induction, etc.)

I would try some heat sheilds for your plug boots. The type discussed on the following thread work great: http://www.hotrodders.com/showthread.php?t=61067, specifically these type: http://cableorganizer.com/insultherm-spark/

Best of luck, Ed www.edgesz28.com

I agree and concur wholeheartedly. I used regular of the shelf plugs for a long time until I tried a set of the race plugs. I'll never go back to a resistor plug.
